Trout Lake Festival of the Arts will show off a new location July 13 and 14 at Farmgate Organics, 149 Little Mountain Road.
Arts Council President Laurie Sherburne says she is excited about the new home.
“It is a great fit for art, music and enjoying the Trout Lake Valley. I have enjoyed working with the owners, Nate Johnson and Genevieve Rodriguez, to create a new home for the festival,” Sherburne said. “The organic farm, beautiful setting and friendly people make this a perfect setting for artists and art lovers.”
Farmgate Organics produces 55 acres of organic herbs and spices, as well as vegetables and flowers. It is surrounded by towering Mt. Adams on the north and the wild and scenic White Salmon River on the south.
Visitors will access the festival via a covered bridge. Artists will show their work around the grounds. Children can create in their own shed. The 1918 farmhouse has a large, inviting porch perfect for enjoying live music and local food and drink.
The Hostetters, former hosts of the event, will continue to be active in the Arts Council.
