As always, there will be live performances: during the day, you’ll be treated to kids’ dance troupes, youth bands and kids’ performers. Then, in the evening, you’ll be able to hear bands at one of the three stages.

There will be shopping! Shop at one of our wonderful Brick & Mortar stores, or check out the craft marketplace we’ll have set up and going all day long.

The Art Walk also brings Live Painting and performances of all kinds. And during the day there will be tons of kids’ art activities, too!
