The bigger the merrier is the absolute belief but not at all a struggle of the “Fermentation Fest”, a food and arts festival in Wisconsin. Recognizing the potentials of such an event to bring people together and inhibit the growth of further political division has given the festival a boost. This event was reported by Jeffrey Brown, Chief Correspondent for Arts, Culture, and Society at the PBS Newshour. Here is a brief description:
A food and arts festival in central Wisconsin has grand ambitions. “Fermentation Fest” celebrates art, farming and all things fermented. But in addition to serving up sauerkraut and kombucha, festival organizers also hope it provides an opportunity for people living in urban and rural areas to connect with each other. Jeffrey Brown reports.
The success of the festival is a glorious tribute to unity. A transcript of the PBS Newshour report can be found here. The video lasts about eight minutes. Take a look!
