Introducing: AGORA Fest.
There are many great festivals in the Champaign-Urbana area so there are some pretty high expectations for a fest. AGORA Fest delivered.
Essentially, downtown Urbana businesses opened their doors to festival goers, offered special deals, and sponsored local artists to create art in their store fronts.
The headquarters was Cafeteria & Company where some bands played and also a panel of Urbana co-op business enthusiasts talked to festival attendees about what it means to be a co-op and how to implement on successfully.
