Since we are on our way to having our 501(c)3 designation (Nonprofit) we will be making some changes to our website.
Soon you will see a change to our domain suffix as well as our email addresses. This is taking place because it's important to the public as well as to the artisans and artists who will be participating, to know for certain that we are a not for profit organization. As such we will be able to accept donations as well as qualify for grants.
The purpose of Artisan Trails in Washington County is to promote excellence, diversity and vitality of the arts for the purpose of enriching the lives of the people of Washington County by the enhancement of the social, cultural and economic qualities of the Washington County community. We will accomplish this by creating a link between that Artisans and Artists within Washington County and the community by providing workshops and county-wide events geared to all ages and through these events promote tourism in Washington County.
July 12 - 14, 2019 will be our next County-wide, self guided trail. we hope you will participate as an Artisan / Artist or as a member of the public out to discover the amazing countryside and the talented people who live here.
