ValleyCAST Virtual Art & Music Makers Festival

Join ValleyCAST this winter for our first ever Virtual Art & Music Makers Festival with over 30 videos of talented musicians and artists of all abilities sharing music, art, art studio tours, artist demonstrations and personal interviews; which we will share with you on Facebook and YouTube beginning on December 29, 2020.

This winter event will be shared with you every Tuesday and Thursday at NOON on our ValleyCAST Facebook page until all of the videos have been shared. The videos will then live on our ValleyCAST YouTube Channel indefinitely. So you can go back and watch each video again and again or see any of the videos you might have missed. Each video is between 5-25 minutes in length, so not a big time commitment. 

All participating artists and musicians are listed below and you can just click on their names and go to their websites or Facebook pages for more information about them. We are also including a link to each artist's video once it has aired.

Please think about supporting your local artists and musicians this winter when you purchase gifts. Thank you and enjoy the Festival!
