The 43rd Street Festival of the Arts will be held on Saturday, September 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The festival is one of Richmond’s premier art events — right in our neighborhood! It features about 75 fine artisans selling their wares, from pottery to painting, from jewelry to turned wood.
Local musicians will provide great entertainment all day. The line-up this year includes OminOtagO at 10 a.m., Rachel Leyco at 11:30 a.m., Janet Martin at 1 p.m., Bluz Catz at 2:30 p.m., and Blue Line Highway at 4 p.m. Food will be available from various vendors, and kid activities such as street art and face painting will make it fun for the whole family.
The festival is also a fund raiser for CARITAS, which provides services to homeless people in the Richmond area.
