The first annual Alpine Spring Art & Music Festival was a great success! The community came out to the Alpine Community Center to enjoy local art from students at Boulder Oaks, paintings from local artists ranging in ages 7 to 98 years of age, over 30 local vendors, live music and 4 different food truck vendors, along with beer from Alpine Beer Company, and wine from Granite Lion Cellars! Alpine couldn’t have asked for better weather to celebrate spring, art and music!
Local gemstone artist, Mike Harlow said, “It was a great first event!” Local artist, Elle Arnot said, “I have met really great people today.”
Local and celebrated artist Phoebe Burnham, who is 98 years old, was the grand prize winner of the Festival Art contest. She said she has been painting for probably 94 years. Her pieces were amazing as was her quick wit and sense of humor. Naomi Tweed, 12, and Owen Daily, 7, won the finalist prizes for the Jr. Art Competition.
The Alpine Chamber wishes to thank all who worked at making this event happen! We also wish to thank all of the music artists that entertained throughout the day who donated their time and talents along with Brendan Prout of Quest San Diego Church, formerly known as Alpine Christian Fellowship, who was a huge help in organizing talent, and Karen Hamlet with MKJ Studios who was onsite with DJ equipment making sure that music played non-stop throughout the day!
