The 40th Annual Remsen Barn Festival of the Arts is this weekend.
Enjoy entertainment, art, shopping, and baking competitions. You can even vote for your favorite exhibit. The live entertainment is free and runs all day.
We spoke to the vice president of the festival to hear what the festival has to offer. Debbie Cotton, the Vice President of the Remsen Barn Festival, says "We do have free entertainment throughout the day. We have a lot of different entertainers that will be there. The Old Main will be there, Cincinnati Creek, Donna & Mike, a magician, a harpist, and Irish dancers. So we have a lot of entertainment that people can take advantage of throughout the day." She also says the festival attracts around 10,000 people every year.
