River Arts Fest
is known for the arts and crafts. But the weather
(zero chance of precipitation) and the music
are not be missed. The Mighty Souls Brass Band
kicks things off Friday night. Boogie around in the crisp fall air to these guys. It's good for you. Plus you'll be warmed up for John Paul Keith, who'll be followed by Luther Dickinson, Shardé Thomas, and Amy LaVere. That lineup is basically its own art festival.
On Saturday, things get properly insane with three stages. Alexis Grace, Grace Askew, Loveland Duren, American Fiction, and Ruby Wilson are only SOME of the talented folks who will be giving sculpture and painting a run for the money. This is always a great weekend for Downtown. It gets to the heart of the walkability thing and showcases our wonderful historic district.
