Jeff Fest Arts & Music Festival
At Jeff Fest Arts & Music Festival, performers play live music, star in plays, and congregate for spirited drum circles.

Craft beers and eats from local food trucks round out the celebration, re-energizing visitors for more outdoor festivities, including browsing local art and crafts.
