ABOUT FRONT YARD FEST
Following the success of the 1st Yeovil Window Wanderland in February this year with more than 200 window displays across the town and surrounding villages, we are bringing Front Yard Fest to Yeovil community this August!
Taking place between 8 to 29 AUGUST 2021, Front Yard Fest Yeovil is a brand new community art event to celebrate our homes – spaces that have become vitally important to us during the pandemic.
Decorate the front of your home, including window/car/porch/garden/etc with flowers, sculptures, recycled art, bunting, banners, billboards, yarn bombing, scenes, whatever you like. This will create a walking art trail around Yeovil, 3 weeks of colour and sunshine!
Community art workshops for all ages from Wednesday 28 to Sunday 31 July, alongside a free mini guide to share activities and ideas from our artists to make your unique display and party for friends, family and neighbour to enjoy with you!
There will be many of us who can’t go away this summer, so let’s bring the holiday vibe to our streets.
To join, please sign up below. Also join our facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/frontyardfestyeovil/
