Singer-songwriter Gary Simpkins, who hosts his own open mic program in Camp Verde every Monday evening is co-producing this music festival alongside Jepperson.

The foyer of the Center for Positive Living will be offering concessions for sale and a raffle to win a gift basket which will include CDs from the artists in the festival, gift certificates, and services donated from local businesses.

In addition, a few vendors will also be in the foyer selling jewelry and offering services.
