The art booths give Arts Fest participants a chance to engage in the bicycle with a bicycle decorating station (baskets, flag making and even personalized bicycle license plats with projects ranging in difficulty from simple to intricate, to appeal to all age groups and levels of manual dexterity. Along with perennial favorites like face painting and tie-dye t-shirts, Arts Fest 2018 booths include bicycle windchimes, pendants and many more opportunities to get creative.
A fresh mix of tantalizing options from our local food vendors: La Fonda Lopez, FORK Food Truck, Iced Blue Star Coffee and more will be available for purchase. Please remember to bring cash. We will also offer a BEER GARDEN to quench your thirst. Bring your ID. Cold brews, smooth wine and more.
Day-long stage music and song is intriguing; and live music keeps the scene dynamic, as well as providing a vibrant backdrop for the many celebrations of art happening around the entire park.
