This family oriented event says organizer Tim Dyck is all about celebrating the arts and culture as a community.
The street festival style celebration is taking place on Queen Street and includes a variety of children’s and adult activities.
For kids there are a number of activities including: sidewalk chalk, a super size flexagon, painting and a treasure hunt.
For the adults there is a BBQ, libations and beginning at 5 pm live music featuring three bands throughout the evening: Saugeen Rhythm Revival, Higher Function and Flash Back.
There will also be walking tours of Artist Alley, which involves the works of arts of local artists proudly displayed in the downtown storefront windows.
Dyck says this region is brimming with talented artists, he says Artist Alley provides a way for these local artists to showcase their creations.
Fellow organizer Lindsey Glazier adds this years event is even bigger and better than last years with more activities, music and attractions.
Admission is free, but donations will be collected for those who wish to contribute to this year’s Arts Fest fundraising cause which is raising dollars for local park improvements.
Glazier encourages everyone to drop by Durham today and join in the celebration of the arts at the 2nd Annual Arts Fest.
