Fountain Fest is back for its 5th anniversary celebration! As one of our most anticipated events of the year, Fountain Fest returns to the Carrie Remmel Dickinson Fountain October 19, featuring food, music, art and libations, all centered around the reveal of a surprise installation in the fountain. Fountain Fest is the can’t-miss party of the fall! Still don’t believe us? Here are five reasons you can’t miss Fountain Fest 5:

1. Fountain

The centerpiece of this great event, the Carrie Remmel Dickinson Fountain is graced with a stunning new installation each October. This year, a team from Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects have devised, designed and installed a beautiful work of art in the fountain in front of the Arts Center. See their work unveiled Thursday evening!

2. Food 

Canvas restaurant is serving up sliders, pimiento cheese and more. Lost Forty is bring chips and salsa (and beer, don’t worry). And if that weren’t enough, Loblolly Creamery is bringing ice cream for dessert. They’ve even created Fountain Fizz (Peach Bellini) ice cream just for Fountain Fest.

3. Fun

Fountain Fest features all the makings of a great party! Lost Forty and Stone’s Throw are bringing beer. Roxor Gin is serving creative cocktails. Local musical duo Luke Johnson and Brian Nahlen will be making music all evening. Create art and play art-themed games with Museum School instructors and students. Strike a pose with shadow puppets, courtesy of the Children’s Theatre!

4. Fate

Do tempt fate – we have a beautiful Louis Vuitton purse and a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 23yr Bourbon up for raffle. You don’t have to be present to win, but why wouldn’t you be? Raffle tickets are $10 each – you can find them at here or at the event.


As in, you’ll be experiencing a lot of FOMO if you miss out on any of Fountain Fest. So don’t! Get your tickets now, and we’ll see you on Thursday!
