The Columbus Arts Festival offers a weekend of beautiful works--and several new additions to add to the fun. The festival, June 3-5, is celebrating 50 years. It showcases more than 200 artists and 40 bands in downtown's Discovery District. New to this year's festivities is Savor the Arts, a culinary event sponsored by Dine Originals. Patrons can sample food from Columbus restaurants like Rigsby's Kitchen, Black Creek Bistro and Katzinger's. Also new to the festival is a VIP Package, with benefits such as VIP Lounge access, free parking, a T-shirt and more. The package starts at $95 per person, with group rates available. Regular admission to the Columbus Arts Festival is free all weekend. For more, visit
