Fable Fest 2018 was a smashing success!

Thanks to everyone who came out!

Almost 10,000 people from our community came out and enjoyed the festivities ... what great weather and what a crowd!

Thanks to our sponsors!

Our sponsors stepped up in a big way - donating their dollars to the Foundation to support the mission of the Library.

Thanks to our vendors!

We had over 25 vendors interacting with the community.

Thanks to our volunteers!

We couldn't run Fable Fest without the scores of teenagers that volunteer to help us set up, run the activities, and help us clean up afterward. Thanks to the JROTC, Boy Scout, and other school organizations and individuals that helped us!

Thanks to our food vendors!

We heard great things about the food trucks we had this year - and there were always lines!
