Get elevated.

Cumberland Market Day – May 20, 2017… in Legendary Cumberland

Another of our annual pre-festival events that helps to raise funds to support the fully-free experiment that is Elevate Arts Festival in June. This is a vending opportunity that draws 1000s of visitors each year for a fantastic day of shopping, music, street entertainment and community fun.
