As with the 2010 event, organizers are again pleased to announce that substantial funding and extensive advertising coverage will extend the reach of this event throughout the Northern California region to therefore drive cultural tourism — travel motivated entirely or in part to experiencing the arts, history, natural resources and unique characteristics of the county. Event organizers are striving to create an experience that will bring visitors to this event and this great county year after year.

Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Arts in Education Programs of the El Dorado Arts Council, the Friends of Youth programs of the El Dorado Hills Optimist Club and the El Dorado Hills community outreach programs of the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce.
