MidSummer’s Dream Art and Music Festival Kicks Off

ASHLAND, Ore. — Summertime activities are abundant in Southern Oregon this weekend. Saturday art admirers gathered in Ashland for The 7th Annual MidSummer’s Dream Art and Music Festival.

About 65 artists set up stands in Ashland to display everything from paintings, to leatherworks, to woodworks, and even dolls.

“Hang out under these nice shade trees, eat some food, browse at some art. It’s become a yearly thing for a lot of people and we try to make it really kid friendly,” said artist David Scoggin.

A portion of the profits go to the Brisco Art School, an organization helping teach art in Ashland schools.

The artists spend 270 hours teaching a year, thanks to these fundraisers. The event continues from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. Sunday.
