A new About Us section contains information on the facility renovation, a history timeline, a facility rentals section, and so much more! The History Timeline showcases the Festival and Pageant's 85-year history through images, photographs, video and stories.
The Home Page features not only general information about the fine art show and Pageant of the Masters, but also listings of today's and featured events, integrated social media buttons, an "In the News" section and patron testimonials.
