Arts, music and fun at 2008 NIC Fest

NIC Fest will be held at the Nicolaysen Art Museum and surroundings in Casper on June 19-21. Festivities get underway on Thursday, 6-8 p.m., with “Preview Night.” It includes music by The Fireants, one of the most popular bands in Wyoming and a staple on the Wyoming Arts Council roster. Also included are a barbecue dinner by Wyoming Smokehouse of Riverton, and a chance to get first crack of the wares exhibited by more than 70 artists from across the nation.

Tickets for “Preview Night” are $25 for museum members and $35 for non-members. They are available in advance at the NIC or at the door.

Last year more than 8,000 people attended NIC Fest, and the Nicolaysen expects more than 10,000 to attend the 2008 festival.

Also featured at the NIC Fest: full line-up of regional bands, including the Jalan Crossland Band and Jeff Troxel; a family area; an “Art of Living” area; an “art car” show; quilt exhibition; a city art exhibition; chalk art competition; and a variety of Wyoming food vendors.
