The Mad Hatter Arts Festival celebrates its 9th year with a return to The Barnacle and along the sidewalks of Main Highway. This juried event features artists of all types of media.

Street painting dates to the 16th century Italy when artists traveled from town to town transforming streets in to temporary art galleries.
