Thank you, thank you. Art is very dear to me. I am a very amateur oil painter and pen and ink sketcher. Would love to be able to attend this event. Again, thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention.

Carthage is very proud of it's local artists-Bob Tommey, Bill Snow, Lowell Davis(used to live here) Andy Thomas, and of course Precious Moments guru Sam Butcher. We have an active group of people promoting the arts.

Couple more "things to do" this fall:
Hermann Octoberfest
Monthly Calendar in Hermann Missouri MO

Kansas City Renaissance Festival (actually in Bonner Springs, KS)
KC Renaissance Festival

Cool Get your mojo working, baby!!!

A few sites that I gander at on occasion to see whatzup around the regions:
Festivals.com ... Celebrating Life.
FestivalFinder: Music Festivals of North America
American Festivals | Festivals in USA
List of festivals in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And, just a quick glance at the stltoday.com website found this:
STLtoday - Entertainment - Visit St. Louis (broken link)

And then also in the StL area:
Saint Louis Jazz & Heritage Festival - Home Page
St. Louis Festivals and Events
might also check STLtoday - Home on a periodic basis.

Great thread idea!

Unhappy Hobbes, sad he can't be there...

If by chance any of yas have even an inkling of a desire to hear and experience some really talented, awesome, phenomenal, great, wonderful music, might clear your calendar and make way to that event that NWV posted above... just now realized that Smokin' Joe Bonamassa will be there... hot damn, that guy will set that guitar to fire and then cool it down to such a level you will be in a lullaby, and then crank back up w/ some kick-arse blues tunes... amazing singer, writer, player.

The only others that I am familiar with and can thereby vouch for are Anthony Gomes, Leon Russell, and the North Mississippi All Stars
All of these cats are way too...
