Sugar Creek Arts Festival kicks off 35 years of festivities

NORMAL - The Town of Normal's annual Sugar Creek Arts Festival will take to the streets of Uptown Normal for the 35th year on July 14 and 15. 

The festival is free to the public and will showcase both local and traveling artists with live music and shows in Illinois State University's planetarium. A film festival will debut at the Normal Theater this year, as well as a wine tent hosted by the Stave Wine Bar & Market, where $1 of every glass will go towards programs at the McLean County Arts Center. 

The festival is juried by Alfonso Gosálbez and Peter Olson. Jurors' choice artists will be recognized on their booth signs and awards will be announced that Sunday at 11 a.m. from the Broadway Street stage. 

Artists from states ranging from Missouri to Georgia will be featured, along with several local artists from the Twin Cities community. 

The festival is managed by the McLean County Arts Center, a nonprofit organization in downtown Bloomington.
