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.
