The Park Ave Summer Art Festival is back for its 40th year, and will bring out more than 300 artists, vendors, and exhibitors from around the United States and Canada to line Park Avenue. Some of the vendors will showcase homemade jewelry, home and outdoors decorations — from wall hangings, engraved stones, and paintings to plant arrangements and pottery — clothing, henna tattoos, and more. The festival's food favorites will be there including blooming onions, fried dough, Italian ice, and some different choices like jambalaya, crepes, and spicy Caribbean chicken. More than 60 live music performances will play throughout the weekend.
