The 43rd Street Festival of the Arts
Neighborhood show celebrates 27 years of music, art, and fun.

Saturday, September 15, 2018 / 10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.

The 43rd Street Festival of the Arts is returning to the Forest Hill
neighborhood this month for its 27th annual event. 80 selected regional artists and craftsmen will show and sell their work. There will also be live music, local food, and special activities for children. Proceeds from the festival will benefit CARITAS, our local homeless provider.

Many of the artisans have been with the show since the beginning.
However, new artists come on board each year to provide variety and fine craftsmanship in many media. This year’s juried outdoor show will include paintings, prints, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, glasswork, and more. Original works of art will be available for purchase and exhibitors will be on hand to discuss and sell their work.

The musical line up this year includes:
10am – 11am – The Atkinsons
11:30am – 12:30pm – Tin Can Fish Band
1:00pm – 2:00pm – Susan Greenbaum
2:30pm – 3:30pm – Bluz Catz
4pm – 5pm – Janet Martin

The unique selection of contemporary art, fantastic local musicians, great food and a loyal neighborhood crowd round out this event.
