  Every year, talented artists from all around the country display their works at the Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival. Choosing the festival winners is a hard job, but every year the judges walk the festival to evaluate the booths and choose winners for the various categories. The winning artists received cash prizes and plaques complete with Shearwater tiles to display at their booth.
