Nineveh festival takes artistic turn

The annual Nineveh town festival will take on an artistic tone this year, focusing on the town’s creative past and present through ceremonies, demonstrations and activities.

Scheduled for Oct. 8 and 9, the event will feature art demonstrations and displays, live music, and a ceremony honoring one of Nineveh’s most famous former residents, William Merritt Chase.

This is the fourth year for the festival. For previous events, the theme was fiddlers and fur-trappers, but organizers wanted to try something new this year.

“That really constrained us. With our focus shifting, we wanted to be able to do something a little bit different each year,” said Nancy Voris, one of the festival organizers.
