Lift Off to Idaho’s Global Summerfest

Works of art made by local students and residents is just a feature of what Idaho’s International Summerfest has in store.

“The Chamber of Commerce puts it all together and works on it all year long,” said Benfield.

Summer fest officially started with the Art Exhibit and awards ceremony at Hemming Village.

“Getting people in the art community to participate and be willing to give their time and effort,” said Hemming.

The Exhibit’s top prize won $250 for first place in the 18 and above college student division.

The Art Exhibit is just one of the many free events that will take place over the following weeks in Rexburg.

“Probably, 80% of the festival is there is a no charge for it we are trying to be able to have a no charge for the whole event,” said Benfield.

The exhibit conveyed passion from the contestants.

“There’s something inside of you that you feel so nourished by the experience you don’t do it for money, you do it because you have to,” said Hemming.

Around 15 contestants won money, but a dedication for the arts holds no value.
