Bash on the Bayou? It’s the Summer Arts Festival in Omaha


How about a little New Orleans flavor in Nebraska? What an interesting concept. The Omaha Summer Arts Festival headed by veteran organizer Vic Gutman is ready to entertain you this weekend.

    The Summer Arts Festival is the latest victim of the severe and unpredictable weather which seems to come up out of nowhere. Most of the artists were okay, but according to the Omaha World-Herald, 10 to 20% of the artists suffered enough damage to have to leave the festival after the Friday storm. The festival continues on after the cleanup.

    A close friend, Bari Precious of Marshfield Missouri, lost her entire booth and wares, save two teapots, when a triple food tent across from her came crashing into her booth. She is heading back home at this writing and hoping have enough stock and to be able to borrow a tent for her next show on July 5th in Sedalia Missouri.

    I’m sure she’d appreciate a visit to her website and a few words of encouragement….
