More comments from our 2014 artists...

There is a sense of community at Millstream that I have not encountered at other fairs. The Millstream community lends a sense of solidarity
from the staff that encourages the artists to benefit from one another. It was no lone competition - at Millstream it was a joy shared!”

“I thought the show was run beautifully. Everyone was very nice and helpful.”

“We love this show! Everyone is so nice.... the community is fabulous. It's a pleasure being a part of the show. “

“The staff is amazing and I REALLY enjoyed working with all of them. You guys are super supportive and encouraging, thank you so much! “

“The quality of artists has improved every year and the crowds seem to steadily grow as well. Organizers and volunteers are wonderful
and we really enjoyed the fun food vendors.”

“It was such a well-planned festival. Congratulations to you all. I heard comments from others saying that it was the best they had ever been to!!!
I was so impressed by the quality and diversity of the artists. Another great job, thank you!”
