The most fun you can have with paint in one day, Paintfest features a wide variety of fun and unique painting activities for the whole family as well as workshops for children with their grownups. This year's theme features painting three dimensional objects.

Additionally, the children will be painting a car, courtesy of Five Star Subaru. Workshops include Unexpected Still Life (age 5+), Treasure Box (age 5+), and Tie-Dye (all ages).
