If you’re looking for a way to spend Labor Day somewhere other than the pools and backyard barbecues, this festival — which began in 1966 — has plenty of sights, sounds and experiences to take in.

Rows of booths will display emerging and established artists, with more than 200 presenting every media imaginable.

The festival also features live entertainment, a multitude of food vendors and many art activities for all ages led by local artists and institutions.
