If you’ve never been out to a stART event, you’ve been missing out on a lot of fun, but you are in luck. The stART crew is having a Spring edition, May 16, 2010 . I’ve pulled together here some photos and videos* of past stART events from 2007 through 2009. This should give you an idea of what stART is all about.
stART on the Street is a series of art festivals held (primarily) in the street. Their big event is in September (This year: Sunday, September 19, 2010, 11am – 5pm ) on Park Ave. According to the stART website, the 2009 event hosted over 25,000 attendees, 250+ artists and crafters, 20+ performers, youth activities, food court – and it’s all FREE.
The Spring Edition is a new event. They’ve got over 135 artists and crafters along with all the other fun stuff that goes along with a stART event.
In addition to being an awesome day of shopping and supporting our local arts community, stART is a good opportunity to get out and meet people and catch up with friends. These are very relaxed, social events that are great for all ages.
