Arts and Music Festival
Brought to you by New Haven's most creative VILLAGE IDEATS

Thanks to all of the performers and other participants who helped make this year's IDEAT VILLAGE the best yet!

We will be updating the web site over the next few weeks with a detailed account of the wildly successful American Ideat competition.

In the meantime, enjoy some photos of the Fashionista Fashion Show as well as photos taken by Fred on June 18th and June 25th and by Randy from Ultra Radio on June 18th (click photo archive, then Ideat Village 2005) and during the American Ideat semi-finals (click photo archive, then Hard Drive Live)

URGENT... an APB is out for the plastic chicken!!

Sadly, the Ideat Village chicken disappeared from Temple Plaza some time between 8 and 10 pm on Saturday June 25th.

One of the last times the chicken was seen (in an official capacity) was with American Ideat runner-up, Leslie, during her performance.

(Note: we're not sure whether the chicken was abducted with or without legs)
