CarmelFest Has Talent expands audition categories


CarmelFest Has Talent will return for another year to discover hidden talents in central Indiana.

The CarmelFest Has Talent committee has expanded the audition categories, adding a group for young adults 17 to 20 along with three other categories: children 12 and younger, youth 13 to 16 and adults 21 and older.

“We wanted to have a wide range of ages and musical talent,” said Becca Wickman, CarmelFest Has Talent co-chair. “Last year, we expanded to all musical talent, not just vocalists, so that we could allow all types of musicians to perform at CarmelFest.”

Auditions will be conducted June 17, 18 and 20. Judges will select semifinalists from each category to perform live July 3 on the Gazebo Main Stage to vie for a spot in the final round July 4. First-, second- and third-place competitors will receive a cash prize.

Online registration is open until June 14. Cost is $25 fee. To register, visit
