This will be our sixth time at the Central Park Art Festival in seven yearsschedule. (We were in Antarctica in 2016 instead.) This festival is sponsored by the Victor Smith Law Group and put on by the Ridge Art Association. On Saturday, March 16th, the hours are from 10 am to 5 pm. Sunday’s hours will be from 10 am to 4 pm. Central Park takes up three blocks between West 4th and 5th Streets and between North Avenue B and South Avenue A. Apparently, the city’s park renovations are now complete.
They are expecting up to 25,000 guests this year to more than 90 artists. There will also be a children’s hands-on tent, student art exhibit, live entertainment, and an international food court. It doesn’t look like they’ve gotten the festival visitor website up and going, but it should soon be reachable from the Ridge Art Association website menu. Stay tuned.
