This is our third time at this festival. This year they will be in Wickham Park, the main entrance of which is on the north side of Parkway Drive halfway between Wickham Road (on the west) and Croton Road.

The festival is free to the public and will be open from 9 am to 5 pm both Saturday, April 22nd and Sunday. Besides the art, there will be a 5k run, KidsWorld, workshops, continuous live entertainment and, of course, food and drink.
