The trail goes from the athletic complex to the land next to the Swift River, with sections open for people to perform or present their art.

Participants do not have to pay a fee to set up their art or perform music, according to a news release from the council. Artists are encouraged to show and sell their works. Hats or guitar cases may set up near their booths to collect donations.

Participants should bring their own pop-up tents, seats, tables, easels and other needed equipment. There is no power on the trail, but the council also asks participants to avoid bringing generators. All music performed should be acoustic.

According to its website, the council is a local nonprofit organization that attempts to create an “organized and diverse artistic culture in Western Maine’s foothill communities by uniting current and future groups concerned with visual and performing arts.”
