This is the second annual installation of this festival, which features the work of 75 artists from across the country. Come to the festival – admission is free – and check out their work. You can also hear live performances from 10 local bands – see a music schedule here. Bring your appetite for the many food vendors that will be on hand. (No coolers are allowed.) Well-behaved, leashed dogs can come along.

Hours of the festival are 5-11 p.m. on Friday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Find parking details here. A map of the festival attractions can be found here.

Note for those who have kids: the festival’s website says, “While supervised young children and teenagers are welcome, there are no activities specifically planned for them.”
