“Because this is our 40th Anniversary of doing the festival, our theme was “Deeply Rooted in the Community” because the festival has always been a community outreach project. It’s not a fund raiser, it’s a friend raiser. We want the community to come out, we want them to know, this is DuSable Museum and this is what we do.” - Marilyn Hunter, Festival Manager, for the Annual Arts and Crafts Festival.
