Judging for the winners of $5,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to artists in the marketplace. The judges will systematically search through the booths in each aisle, interacting with the exhibitors, while seeking the best of the best in six categories. Winner's ribbons, including the two $1,000 purchase prizes, will be presented to the winning artists and craftsmen to proudly display in their booths throughout the festival. Drawings for visitor giveaways include theatre and overnight getaway packages, wagon rides, guided tours and dinner from LaSalle Farm & Table.
