Do you paint? Throw pots? Create sculpture? Blow Glass with torches? Draw? Or do you possess another unique artistic or crafty talent? Come be a part of the Artist Caravan this year at the 7th Annual TOCO Family Festival & Camp Out for the Make-A-Wish Foundation! Campers are invited in to see your amazing craftwork and share in your community. Artists are invited to share your wares for a small fee of only $20 for vending artists only. In return for the discount, we ask that you demonstrate your work for the kids, or donate a piece of your work to the raffle.

For charitable & educational purposes, TOCO (Tapestry of Community Offerings) organizes family themed events in order to raise awareness & financial support for regional families & children in need. Both TOCO & Make-A-Wish© share the belief that life should be measured in memories, not years! Please go to TOCO & make some of your own memories while helping youngsters live their dreams!

TOCO Family Festival patrons rally Friday September 5th & Saturday SEPTEMBER 6th for 48 hours of fun, beginning at 3pm at CAMP ONDESSONK: 3760 Ondessonk Road, Ozark, Illinois 62972; inside the magnificent Shawnee National Forrest.

FOOD & DRINK will be available for patrons. Visitors pick up RAFFLE TICKETS for a chance to win great prizes. In the KIDS PLAY PARTY ZONE kids find hands on creative art activities such as shaker making, painting, & the famous tree diva coloring contest. The area will also feature a special RePlay Music Demo presented by Rodney Branigan & his London crew. TOCO also believes strongly in community education and hosts an Awareness Walk where patrons & not for profit groups exchange intelligent ideas.
