Web Site Development

The first American River Festival web pages were posted by Donna McMaster in 1996, as part of the website. A few years later, she registered the festival domain name and created a separate site.

The American River Festival logo was designed by Bert Wells of Fluid Dynamics. Heather Shakespeare designed and created a site layout using that logo. In 2010, Donna McMaster adapted Heather’s design to WordPress to create the current site.
