The inaugural PaoliFest will take place on August 11, 2018 at the Tomato Products Company in Paoli. Built to be a celebration of the town and community, the festival will be a completely free event featuring local and nationally touring musicians, visual art, films made by local youth, food and craft vendors, workshops, jam sessions and children's entertainment.
PaoliFest grounds will be the Tomato Products Company, a 1910 factory being lovingly renovated into a community arts center by Kara Schmidt, Andy Gerber and Tim Schmidt. Kara, Andy and Tim are building an artist-in-residency program called Black Vulture Project, which has already brought numerous artists and musicians into the community.
PaoliFest is a joint venture between Black Vulture Project and Jordana Greenberg, a local musician and internationally touring performer who credits the musicians she encountered in Paoli among the influences that have shaped her career.
