It’s the end of May now and All About PA Month has come to a close. I hope that I opened your eyes to the wonderful things that you can find in the Keystone State. We had interviews with three interesting people scattered throughout the state, I talked about SNAG, FlavorFest and gave you some PA art scene linky love. Hopefully you’ve found out about what a great arts destination PA is and how involved its community members are.
So, have I inspired you? Do you want to visit this great state? Or do you want to become more involved in your own community? What things make your state unique? Have you started to think seriously about “Buy Local, Buy Handmade”? Summer is a wonderful time to get out and meet people. Get to know your neighbors, visit local shops and events, begin to research and explore your state. Then why don’t you blog about it and let us know what you found out by leaving a link in the comments here?
What, you don’t care for wine? There is still plenty at FlavorFest for you. First, there’s the music. Indian Summer Jars, The Lovell Sisters, Jazz Me, and the Andrew Bellanca Trio will all be playing there. There will be a few chef demos and of course food to fill your belly (I just have to say – Kettle Korn). There’s a Kids’ Corner full of stuff for the little ones to keep them happy. Dominic Carisetti will be speaking about winemaking and David Houseman will talk about homebrewing.
And of course there will be PA Guild of Creftsmen there to handle all your Summer shopping needs! (There will be more posts later delving into the crafts that will be on offer at FlavorFest.)
I also want to let you know that I’m planning here on the blog to make May “All About PA Month.” I’m trying to get a couple of new interviews for you and of course all the FlavorFest info. The Artist of the Month will also be a PA jeweler, but I won’t say who yet! If you have anything art related or otherwise PA focused, please share it with us either as a comment on a post or email me and I’ll let everyone know.
