The festival is in it's 15th year now and has over 200 performers on 10 stages, over 100 local artists and best of all- tons of food! Arts Beats and Eats will be going on Friday, August 31 through Monday, September 3.
As for the beats part of the weekend, there are quite a few bands worth checking out. A few of the bands we can't wait to see are: Mayor Hawthorne, G Love & Special Sauce, Morris Day & The Time, The Sights, Kaleido and The Twistin' Tarantulas. You can go here to see showtimes and a list of the other bands playing.
The art will be located in the same place again this year, in the southern part of the festival. For the eats, there will be a lot of the old favorites present, but some new ones as well. Plus, BBQ alley! For a full list of the food that will be served, you can go here.
A few years ago they added an admission fee to get in to Arts Beats and Eats, but luckily it was only $3. However this year, it will be $3 until 5 p.m., when it will become $5. The admission fee does go toward good things at least, like Art Advocacy and different charities.
Hope to see you all around this weekend!
