Standing for Food, Art and Music, the FAM JAM was an early season festival to really kickoff the downtown activity for the season.
Art work was created on the spot by several area artists and crafters. People came and went all afternoon during the 2 to 8 p.m. festival. According to on of the organizers and "connected" helpers, it was a good turnout though she admitted no attendance records were broken.
The event got off to a rough start when they showed up to find the electric was not turned on and Woods scrambled to find someone to remedy the situation in Justus Park. Also one of the event organizers was stranded by a cancelled flight in Florida.
“FAM Jam is a great opportunity to bring the community and the arts together,” stated Christine Manning, Vice President of the Oil City Arts Council and one of the event organizers in a pre-event press release.
