"The Tallman Arts Festival is a hallmark of the Rock County Historical Society," Michael Reuter, executive director of RCHS was quoted as saying in a news release. "For some, it is the one event that brings them to the RCHS campus during the entire year. With this event, and through new Tallman tours, exciting exhibits and a growing educational offering, we are helping visitors realize that everything RCHS offers cannot be experienced through only one visit."
The educational area at the festival, Young at Art, will offer insect and animal patterns, made out of leaves, twigs and other natural materials, connecting kids with the festival’s theme. Additionally, food trucks from Rock County and the surrounding areas have been invited to attend the festival this year, offering visitors more food options that they can try and enjoy.
"Food can seemingly make or break a festival like TAF," Reuter said. "There is a growing food truck community in Rock County and beyond, and we are thrilled to be able to cultivate a relationship between them and our guests."
