Caldera Arts will celebrate the autumn season in the second annual Hearth Festival October 21, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Caldera Arts, 31500 Blue Lake Dr. west of Sisters.
Hearth Festival is a joyous celebration of creativity, and a welcome for community members of all ages to join us for shared space and experiences, celebration, playfulness, and community.
Hearth Festival is designed to bring together community members of all ages to Caldera's 119-acre Arts Center on the shores of Blue Lake for a daylong exploration of the practice of creativity. This festival will feature opportunities to explore creativity through a variety of mediums. Guests will be invited to use their creative muscles by engaging in photography, screen printing, ceramics, paper making, sound-play, dance and movement, and more!
Community members are welcome to stay for the whole day or drop in throughout the day. Locally crafted artisan food will be available for purchase on-site, or bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy near Blue Lake.
