ADDBACThe Carmel Arts & Design District Business Association of Carmel (ADDBAC) invites the public to join us for this inaugural event in the heart of the District.

This is a family-friendly event that is free and open to the public. It will include live music on stage, food, kids activities, ADDBAC member booths (with items for sale), display and judging of the high school art contest entries, a raffle for small bushel baskets that have been decorated, and the launch of Club Applesauce.

Art Contest/Baskets
The art contest was advertised to high school students throughout Ham. Co. and the winner will receive the ADDBAC scholarship, to be used toward college tuition. The entries will be judged that day. The baskets that are currently being decorated by ADDBAC members will be auctioned off at the event, and that money goes to fund the scholarship. ADDBAC businesses gave a donation for the basket(s) they are decorating, which also goes to the scholarship. Plain baskets with mums will be sold for $15 each.

Club Applesauce
This is a new quarterly newspaper dedicated solely to kids arts. It is run by Adam Seif and will make its debut at Applefest. Adam will also hold a kids drawing class during the event.

Live Music
The Midwest School of Voice will have some of its vocalists performing on stage, and a band will also perform, courtesy of Detour.

Face in a Hole
Several charities are painting 4’ x 6’ boards, each with two face holes in them. These will be displayed in the District during the event. People will be invited to take photos with their “face in a hole.” The charity with the most photos (posted to FB) will receive $250, courtesy of the Simply Sweet Shoppe.

Decorated Apple
The public is invited to decorate an apple (all ages are welcome to do this), take a photo of it, then post the photo to The person with the most votes wins a basket with goodies from ADDBAC businesses.

Some of the activities that will take place at the ADDBAC member booths will be corn hole, a putting green, marshmallow shooter and bobbing for plastic apples (small prize inside), and possibly a craft. More activities are still being planned.
