2018 Festival Poster 

2018 is the 21st year. The Festival in the Clouds is the largest and most popular event sponsored by the Alma Foundation. The free outdoor art and music festival includes about 25 bands and 40 regional artists annually. In addition to fabulous art and music, the event features delicious food, children’s activities, a beer garden, dancing and more.
The festival, originally intended to provide a venue for local musicians and artists to gain exposure has proven to be the biggest Alma Foundation fundraiser. More than $25,000 was raised in 2018 for area community projects.
