LymeFest 2020 planning is underway, however due to COVID-19, the event is very likely to be cancelled for a September date. Instead, we may work toward Spring 2021 or Fall 2021.

We will keep you posted!

LymeFest 2019 was a HUGE success.  We exceeded our expectations and were able to raise 1/2 the cost of this year's artist in residence.  Thank you to all who came and again, thank you to the arts organizations that supported us with pairs of tickets to awesome musical acts at their venues:

VOLUNTEERS!  Please help us to make this event a success.  Most slots are an hour of helping out.  Slots available the morning before the event (set up stage) during the event (taking tickets and helping people enter the raffle) and after (clean-up). LYMEFEST: http://bit.ly/lymefest2019 or https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080e44aaad2dabf94-lyme
