The Marquette Downtown Development Authority is hosting an artist’s reception for the 2018 Blueberry Festival Poster Contest on Thursday, June 7 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The winner of the poster contest will be announced during the event. The reception will take place at the Marquette Downtown Development Authority offices at 203 S. Front St in Downtown Marquette. All participants in the 2018 Blueberry Festival Poster Contest, along with their family, friends, and the public are invited to attend.
This year, there are 19 beautiful entries in the annual contest, with voting taking place both online and in person through Friday, May 25. The winning entry is determined by a combined score based on submitted votes and a panel of judges comprised of local artists, downtown business owners, and public officials. The winning entry will be announced during the reception, and we strongly encourage all artists to attend.
The winner will receive $150 in gift certificates from downtown businesses and 10 high quality posters. The poster itself will be available for purchase at Blueberry Festival and several locations throughout Marquette’s Downtown District.
