In a typical year, there are 325 artist booths, three stages, three beer <br />gardens, a youth area, a fine art show and two or three food booth areas. AAF has a full time <br />staff of five people, an eleven member Board of Directors and more than 230 volunteers. The <br />Festival was cancelled in 2020 and the office was closed for six months. Since January, the staff <br />and board have been working to prepare the organization to be flexible enough to host and <br />event of any size allowed this summer. Our team feels that even if our organization loses <br />money this year, it is our responsibility to host a safe, well-planned event this year for our local <br />businesses, our community and the artists who rely on our festival for their livelihood.
