A year ago, the festival was celebrating its second annual festival, and many were hoping for a return to the days when the festival had an audience and a large number of participants.
But now that the festival is no longer operating, it’s time for the community to celebrate its second year of celebration.
The festival had its biggest year ever last year, with over 50,000 attendees, a record that still stands.
The festival opened its doors on October 5, and is one of the most visited arts events in the country.
“It’s been the best year in our history,” said festival co-director of communications, Melissa Pritchett.
“And it’s been so much fun, we really are going to miss the community.
But we have to give back, we have so much work to do, so much to do.”
On the festival’s website, the 2018 festival is listed as the 10th-most-visited in the United States, and it will continue to grow.
The 2018 festival attracted more than 12,000 people to its venues, which were filled with over 200 vendors.
There were nearly 200 stages throughout the festival, which saw over 200 performances, more than 200 dance parties and more than 1,000 live performances.
The 2017 festival also saw an increase in attendance, with the festival expecting to host more than 5,000 in 2019.
The 2017 festival saw more than 8,700 people attend, a number that’s expected to grow as well.
“We really believe in the community, and we’re going to take advantage of it and keep going,” said Pritchtt.
The community has supported the festival financially through this year’s event, and this year, the money will be distributed to local nonprofits that have helped the festival expand.
The Oregon Shakespeare Society, a non-profit organization that promotes and promotes Oregon Shakespeare, will provide $200,000 to help cover the cost of the festival for the 2018-2019 festival season.
It is not known how much money the festival will receive for the 2019-2020 season.
For Pritchen, the community’s contribution is crucial.
She said she thinks it will help the festival grow and give it a better chance to reach its potential.
“What I think is important is to keep it in the public eye, to be involved, to give it that community feel,” said Patten.
“I think that’s what it’s really about, the arts, and I think that will help us grow.”
