Mayor shares goals for Foothills 2019

BY JAMES PHILLIPS - Daily Mountain Eagle

During the Tuesday meeting of the Jasper City Council, Mayor David O’Mary talked briefly about the 2019 Foothills Festival, which is currently in the planning stages.

“Foothills last year was a banner year, but I think we can do better,” O’Mary said. “The magnitude of this production is not something you can do a week or two before, or even a month or two before. I commend our folks who are working on this right now to make this happen, and I think Foothills 2019 will be something we can all be proud of having in our city.”


O’Mary said many new corporate sponsors have committed to the project for this year.

“We have picked up some significant interest from folks out of town who want to be a part of Foothills,” he said. “I believe we will see a group of partners that will contribute money unprecedented in years past.”

Organizers have created a list of goals for the upcoming festival, which will be Friday and Saturday, Sept. 6-7, in downtown Jasper. O’Mary said those include sharing the spirit of community, providing a high-quality event that is free to the public, showcasing established and up-and-coming music artists; and providing vendors, artists, craftsmen and nonprofits who connect to the culture of the region.

“We hope these goals mesh with everyone, and we can all work together to be sure that is what our festival brings to our community,” O’Mary added.
