Calling all artists

Dear Editor:

Basalt High School is still accepting artists for our second annual Yule Fest: an Arts and Food Festival on Dec. 4-5. This is a chance for artists and craftsmen from the Roaring Fork Valley and the western Colorado region to showcase and sell their artwork to our community.

There will also be music, entertainment and an international food court available to hungry shoppers. The festival is a fundraiser for Basalt High School clubs and student organizations. Admission is free, and donations will be accepted. In addition to all the shopping and entertainment, we will also have baby-sitting, Santa Clause and his elves, a magician and great door prizes on the hour.

We are still looking for artists and craftsmen to join us. If you are an artist and want to participate in this event please contact us at Basalt High for an application. The show will take place Saturday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information please contact Yule Fest student coordinator Maxine Harris at (970) 309-6576 or Yule Fest teacher coordinator Seann Goodman at (970) 384-5934. Simply to request an application send an e-mail to

Thanks for your continued support of Basalt High School student activities, and we hope to see you ready to shop in December at Yule Fest.
