The Festival was to be held from 12 to 15 March with 116 exhibitors. Now the organization and the City Council are working to find a new date for the Festival that could be next fall.
Over these dates, the general public may view a variety of international exhibitions as well as the AEP exhibition of work that has been submitted by associates who are opting for an award.
