New Website, Old Hilliardfest Art & Street Fair

Old_Hilliardfest_Art_&_Street_Fair_-_2014-03-21_21.41.04We have been working with the Old Hilliardfest Art & Street Fair since 2012.

Old Hilliardfest is a street fair that takes place in downtown Hilliard, Ohio on Main Street each fall on the second Saturday of September. Old Hilliardfest includes a selection of food vendors, various organizations and small businesses with information booths, a number of artisans with merchandise for sale, and several venues with live music. The festival lasts throughout the day. Old Hilliardfest is a non-profit organization with 501(C)(4) tax status. The organization consists entirely of volunteers.

In 2012 we quickly threw together a Drupal website in time for the 2013 festival. Drupal is a free and open-source content management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License.It is used as a back-end framework for at least 2.1% of all websites worldwide, ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including whitehouse.gov and data.gov.uk. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.

In preparation for this year’s festival, we wanted to help Old Hilliardfest spruce up the website and make it a little more esthetically “cool looking”. We developed a WordPress site for themand it’s now live. WordPress is another free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service. Similar to Drupal, WordPress features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.

Some of the features of the new website include a rather typical blog, a page with testimonials, a section of the website for frequently asked questions, a page with a Google Map and contact form, tons of photos, etc.

proVanceTek offers website design, web development, domain registration, and website hosting. If you’re in the market for a website update or redesign, get in touch with us!
