The Fantastic Festivals company was founded in 2007 by Gary Partridge and became a division of Inspire Arts & Music.  For over 14 years, Fantastic Festivals has grown in size hosting over 225 groups and 6,700 students annually.  Founded on the principles of the highest quality of adjudication, facilities, logistics, and experience, Fantastic Festivals is one of the premier scholastic festival experiences in New England.  Inspire Arts & Music is honored and excited about the opportunity to ensure long term sustainability for this special company and is committed to safeguarding the brand and experience for students and music educators. 

The Enfield Performing Ensembles have been participating in Fantastic Festivals for over a decade of experiences.  This past weekend the festival included an educational clinic with the professional adjudicators to share their musical knowledge and apply their expertise to assisting the Enfield students to increase their performance and musical skills.  The audience consisted of family, friends, teachers, and community supporters throughout the festival day.  Thank you, Enfield, for your consistent support for our students and musical opportunities!
