Kinzua Heritage Arts & Music Festival 2018 – Day 1

_LG26987Spirit Wing

 

This year marked the 13th year of the Kinzua Heritage Festival. Counting this year I have attended the festival eight of those 13 years. I attended the first festival in August 2007. Since 2011 I have attended the festival each year, except in 2015. In 2007 I attended the festival for only a few hours. Since 2011 I have attended the festival all three days, all day long. Also, I have been the official photographer for this event since 2011. I photograph this event on a volunteer basis and share my photographs in order to promote the festival.

The Kinzua Heritage Festival grounds are located at 4047 Fox Hill Road in Russell. The festival is a family-oriented event featuring living history portrayal, vendors from both in and out of the area, period dress, recreations of crafts and trade of the time period, storytelling, Native American social dances, live music from folk to bluegrass to Native American flute and drum, food and children’s activities.

The festival hours on Friday (8/24/2018) were 10:00 am until 7:00 pm. I arrived at the festival around 10:00 am and departed the grounds at approximately 8:30 pm. I spent the day photographing the festival vendors, artisans, entertainers, and attendees. It felt like “home week”, as the festival organizers, vendors, artisans and entertainers welcomed me warmly.  Many of the vendors, artisans and entertainers were those who have been at the festival year after year, although there were several new faces this year.  The festival grows year after year.

Live music was provided by Barry of Spirit Wing and Rick Palieri, Earth Angel, Spirit Wing, Rick Palieri and his Polish instruments, and Rick Palieri and his original content.  For the first time an open-air concert was held after the festival events of the day concluded.   At 8:00 pm Ron Carrington Sr and the Touch of Gold put on a free concert, open to the public.

    I am glad that you can give your photography talents in such a way to promote the festival. That’s so important and neat…. Hope you are enjoying it this year–as well as you have in previous years…

    We had a wonderful 12 day trip out west and are now home NOT enjoying the heat and humidity here. I’m SO ready for some real Fall. We had fantastic weather in South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming this year…

    Hugs,
    Betsy
