Potato Days Festival
Main Street Program, Barnesville, Minnesota
Each year, the city of Barnesville, Minnesota is host of the Potato Days
Festival, welcoming nearly 20,000 people to take part in fun potato-themed
events and entertainment. Barnesville is my hometown, and in 1997,
I offered to develop a festival website as a way for me to
contribute as a volunteer for the festival. This is the third different
design I have provided over the life of this project.
The site is organized
into several key areas, history, event information, schedule, lodging,
travel directions among others. I utilized Adobe Acrobat documents
throughout the site which users can download to register for events
or purchase festival merchandise.
My Role in
I conceptualized and developed the entire website. This site is now managed
by the event committee.
