Well, another Cyclops Fest is in the books! It was a whirlwind of creativity, awesomeness, incredible people and LITERALLY a monsoon of rain. Yes, we had to shut down due to weather a couple of hours early, but we still managed to pack in an epic amount of wonderfulness in the time that we had. None of it would have been possible without all of the heart, time and passion so many of you put into it. So, without further ado, we want to give a huge shoutout and virtual bear hug to every vendor who sat in 95 degree heat, all of our volunteers who worked their butts off, and of course, every festival attendee that supported the artists with your hard earned cash, drank beer and rocked out.
Nina Carina is inspired by the organic shapes and colors of nature, and creates jewelry and accessories that reflect that inspiration. Using hammered metals, repurposed and vintage fabrics, canvas, and stones, she makes unique and original necklaces, earrings, headbands, hairclips, and skirts.
The Cyclops automobile is scratch built by Glenn and Matt Thomas (father and son). They duplicated, as close as possible the 1957 Stan Mott design that showed up in 22 articles in Road and Track Magazine over the past 59 years. The vehicle is only 48” long x 38” wide!
We’d like to thank the talented vendors for providing the festival with their handmade awesomeness. From hand knitted hats to hot off the grill hot dogs, no one failed to impress.
Thank you to all the musicians and DJs that kept us dancing and moving all day long! Thank you to our wizard of sound Jim Simpson!
Thanks to the Village of Yellow Springs and the police department for all your assistance and to the John Bryan Community Center for providing the perfect space for our handmade party!
The ultimate thank you goes out to our amazing volunteers that have continued to support us over the past few years, there are only a handful of people who can do what they’ve done and we were lucky enough to have 53 of them! They make Cyclops Fest a truly epic place to be!!!
