   The PAF committee and volunteers are looking forward to celebrating the half-century mark of the Pembroke Arts Festival in 2017! In recognition of this special event we will be featuring the vibrant artwork of the late Brooks Kelly, one of the founding artists of the Festival. We plan to bring to you all of the traditional elements you've come to expect on this special summer weekend. These include exciting works by accomplished artists, chosen by three respected jurors, to be displayed in the Hall. Lively artwork by young area artists will be featured under the tent, as well as many fabulous raffle items to benefit our two college scholarships, for Visual and Performing Arts. The Town Green will be filled with food tents, juried crafters' booths, and dancers and musical performances on the outdoor stage throughout the weekend. Awards ceremonies on Friday evening will honor the recipients of many generous prizes. There will be the classic Gala Opening in the Hall for juried artists, and a red carpet Awards Ceremony in the Tent for our young artists. Our committee will be working diligently to present a Festival worthy of our 50th year. There will be many volunteer opportunities on this website as we get closer to the event, and committee meetings are open to any who would like to attend and contribute. Please mark your calendars because you won't want to miss this wonderful weekend in Pembroke!
