Betty Rivard, producer of the FestiVALL Art Fair, said she received excellent feedback from the public regarding the fair.

“One of the things we see every year is people plan reunions, family vacations, or events so they happen during FestivALL so they get the benefit of the activities here,” Rivard said. “We feel very proud of what Charleston has been able to offer both locally in the state and beyond the state.”
