Our Festival is the first in the nation in the year 2020 when we will once again vote for the leader of our country. One of our themes is “Presidential Elections.” We are also celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. The suffrage movement is a central part of American history and one that has irrevocably changed the American landscape.
