2nd Star Festival

Many people would describe themselves as artistic if asked, but, really, the biggest part of truly being artistic is being creative. Luckily, if you have writer’s, artist’s or crafter’s block, this year’s 2nd Star Festival is inviting you to come “Get Hooked on Art!” The theme of the festival, held at Dorris Ranch in Springfield, is “Find Your Creative Spark!” The two-day event is filled with all sorts of artistic endeavors, boasting about 100 artisans, authors, illustrators and community booths, according to its website. There will also be workshops, a “Steampunk Museum,” a tiny home to tour and musical performances. The festival is open to people of all ages. “Our grassroots mission is to take adults and children alike to a land beyond,” says an email from festival founders Kesha and Matt Hawk. “Once you step through our gates, you will enter into a Land of Inspiration, where all forms of creativity, music, and dance are celebrated and shared.” 

2nd Star Festival is 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 5 and 6, at Dorris Ranch (205 Dorris Street, Springfield). Tickets are $8-$10 for a day pass, or $13-$15 for both days. Children 12 and under are FREE. — Meerah Powell
