FestivALL Princess Named Tamarack Foundation Fellow

Over the past 11 years Jude Binder has been the face behind the face of FestivALL, literally. You've seen the iconic "FestivALL Princes" on our promotional materials for years, and also at our events where she dances in her beautifully crafted masks and costumes. She adapted this title of "Princess" after performing at one of our FestivALL events in her Marie Antoinette-style wedding dress that was her daughter-in-laws. Children at the event started calling her a princess, and the nickname has stuck ever since.

Thank You, Charleston!

We would like to extend our thanks to you and yours for joining us this FestivALL! We celebrated our 13th year with a vibrant array of talent in the capital city. June became a work of art with the help of our community and the talents we welcomed to town. Our artists, the City of Charleston, donors, sponsors, volunteers, staff and attendees continue to make FestivALL the largest arts festival in the state of West Virginia, and we thank you for that!

There's nothing like hearing a brass band up close for experiencing the essence of New Orleans and its music. Even, sometimes, when you aren't in New Orleans.
