As Chairperson for the Spirit of Monticello Festival, I would like to cordially invite you to this year’s Spirit of Monticello Festival, June 19 & 20. This year’s festival promises to be an exciting weekend of music, contests, and family fun memories!

The streets will be lined with unique art & craft vendors, huge food court, and beer & wine garden. The 5K Run/Walk, Car Show, children’s games, various contests for young and old alike, and the great music will promise to make your visit to our festival a great experience.

Also, back by popular demand, will be our “Bring SOM (Spirit of Monticello) Talent” contest. We had great participation at last year’s event and we’re looking forward to more great talent this year! I strongly urge all of you, young and old, to participate in this very entertaining event. We have a lot of talent out there, so bring it on! Please check out the website for details here.

So come to downtown Monticello and find the excitement and spirit that is our great town.

See you there!


Darin Griesey – Festival Chair
