The 15th Annual Carmel International Arts Festival on September 22 and 23 will feature an array of entertainment options, including an area designated as “Young at Art” offering family-friendly activities.
Pat Hite, Arts Festival board member and volunteer, is well underway making plans for family fun and arranging for street entertainers to appeal to all ages. Special children’s activities will include Dooley the Clown creating balloon art, Clown-E offering face painting, and Daryl Pfree portrait drawings by caricature artist and instructor Daryl Pyle.
The primary “Young at Art” area will be appropriately located in front of the Sweet Shoppe in Carmel on Range Line Road. In addition to a dedicated family area, the festival will feature street musicians and performers, including Brad Hoyt playing an amazing harp-guitar and David Arrington (from SaxItUp) performing jazz favorites on the saxophone.
According to Hite, “In addition to entertainers and activities, the festival we will place popular cut-outs along Main Street where you can take your picture posing as a sumo wrestler, Japanese geisha, Irish stepper and Bavarian German girl.”
Festival board members will be making final plans during the next few weeks to assure that the 15th Annual Carmel International Arts Festival will be a memorable event for the community.
Mark your calendars for September 22 (10 a.m. – 6 p.m ) and September 23 (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and Celebrate the Arts in downtown Carmel at Main Street and Range Line Road.
As always, admission and parking for the festival are FREE! For more information, visit the website at www.carmelartsfestival.org.
