Thank You Seward Community Foundation

This year was the first year the Seward Music & Arts Festival applied for and recieved a $5000 Grant from the Seward Community Foundation. These funds were matched by the Seward Arts Council and used for SMAF Administrative Costs. As this annual festival grows, the responsibility and amount of hours necessary to put it together increases. For the past ten years, the festival has been produced by a small committee of unique, dedicated and artistic individuals. Everyone up until now volunteered countless hours of their time to help create a wonderful event for the Seward community.

2014 Design Chosen

After many meetings and an overwhelming amount of talented artists who submitted their designs. We could not choose just one! So the main design for posters and shirts goes to Lars Olson, Additonal art work by Jeremy Stubblefield and SHS Students we will incorporate the designs into the many different aspects of the festival Fantasy Theme. We will also showcase all submissions in the Art Show and have plans to create a coloring book of past SMAF designs as well as some of the newest submissions.. Also look for a great variety of new stickers!! GOOD STUFF! Here is a sneek peek of this years main design. Start thinking about your Fantasy costume as they will be encouraged this year but not required.
