Celebrate the annual Founder’s Day Summer Arts Festival with the Finger Lakes Art Council and Willard Chapel!

Learn about the Founders of Willard Chapel: Georgiana and Caroline Willard.

Enjoy live music like Flock of Free Range Children, Nuclear Ukelele, and DYNAMIX. There will be food vendors, dozens of artisans, and free tours of the chapel!


The Finger Lakes Art Council’s full-size historic figures will guide you through the festivities. Don’t forget to pose for a #selfie!

We will again have a silent auction, and we sold out of our secret recipe lemonade and coffee early last year… don’t miss it!

Artistic Impressions & Sew What will be open! The fabulous boutique and non-profit craft shop (respectively) are hidden gems here in Auburn you’ll be thrilled to have found.
