The music lineup includes many new artists, plus a few familiar faces from last year.
On Saturday, the day will begin with One Love Yoga Collective for yoga and a drum circle.
“There has never been an interactive aspect to the lineup, so we are very excited about this. Everyone in attendance is encouraged to join us,” said Miles Davidson, the event’s musical organizer.
Next, on Saturday, the Evil Twins are going to rock some blues for audiences. Then, Stratoscope, a Hamilton hometown favorite, will finish out the day’s performances. Sunday’s live entertainment will include Double Tap, an acoustic duo, followed by a return appearance from the Dave Palmer Jazz Quartet.
In addition to the art and live music, the festival will feature a beer garden with domestic and craft beers, wine and soft drinks. A variety of food vendors will also be on site. There will be several demonstrations throughout the Art Fair as well as a community pavilion.
“This year, we are introducing the Cardboard Castle. We have been collecting large cardboard boxes for several months now. Starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, we will have a Cardboard Castle team constructing a huge, interactive Cardboard Castle for the kids, which will continue throughout the two days,” FitzGibbons said. “Kids will have an opportunity to participate and create something.”
“If you’ve ever built a refrigerator-box fort, think of that on a hundred-times scale,” he said. “It will be interactive, engaging and constantly evolving.”
