2012 Festivals Poster

Posted By Bryce Parks on March 29, 2012

LINK FIXED!!! Click here to see and/or download the 2012 Dubuqueland Festivals Poster sponsored by American Trust and Savings Bank! What a difference a year makes.  Last year at this time, we speculated that early interest in our annual festivals calendar was due to the fact that we were still dodging piles of snow and so were collectively dreaming of warmer weather and the annual events it brings.  This year, as we dig out lawnmowers in March, the weather seems like we should already be standing around the Town Clock, chatting with friends and listening to live music with a cold one in hand.
