An arts-focused festival that weaves its way through Rhode Island Avenue businesses, open areas, and vacant properties. This year, we explore the theme of creative collaborations – innovative and artistic ways to solve complex problems. The day includes performing and visual arts elements, hands-on activities, local food, drink, and retail vendors, as well as a chance to hang out with your Rhode Island Avenue small business owners and employees!
Participating artists share a revolutionary vision and engage festival-goers through heart, mind and body.
