Joe Bell talks with WNZR about the 2022 Mount Vernon Music & Arts Festival

Joe Bell serves as the Co-Director of the Mount Vernon Music & Arts Festival Board. He talked with local media about this year’s festival.

He talks about how this festival has something for everyone and lets people be creative.
He shares details of this year’s Festival Wood Challenge and explains the theme of creating toys and unique items for children.
The Wood Challenge items will be on display in the Mount Vernon Grand Hotel Ballroom throughout the festival. They will be auctioned off on Saturday, 8/13 at 6pm in front of City Hall.

Joe also talks about another NEW creative challenge for local artists involving 8-foot carousel horses!

Another NEW event at this year’s festival is the Bistro. Play It Blue Jazz will perform Friday night from 10pm – 11pm for a perfect and relaxing way to end the evening.

Joe Bell shares his excitement about seeing imagination and creativity coming to life at the festival. We hope that you will join WNZR in downtown Mount Vernon this week!
