stART on the Street: Fall Edition

The Art of Play

It is that time of year again when more than 250 artists and crafters set up shop in between Highland and Pleasant Streets on Park Avenue in Worcester for stART on the Street. This one-day, outdoor arts, music and cultural festival is scheduled to return on Sunday, September 20th from 11AM till 6PM. In addition to unique, handmade items  for sale, there will be artist demonstrations, a youth market featuring work by those under the age of 18, as well as representatives from a number of non-profits showcasing the area’s great causes that could use our assistance.

As always we suggest that you arrive with room for food as we've lined up a variety of food trucks and food vendors that promise to serve tasty treats and delicious dishes: Vegan and vegetarian offerings  are plentiful.   While noshing, there is full day’s schedule of street performances and dance troupes ready to entertain. We'll have two stages set in order to introduce new music talent to the masses. We've continued our focus on the Art of Play, and lined up hands-on kids’ activities and interactive creative features for fun-lovers of all ages to investigate. Our lineup will continuously be updated while new acts come on board, so check back here or head to our Facebook page to see what's in store for you.
