Complementing the tour activities is a Music Fest with the area’s most popular entertainers. A culinary competition known as the Dish n Fish is held with area culinary students creating special dishes for popular vote tasting and judging. This year offers a student and professional competition for sliders. Yum Yum. Food trucks will be parked on Poplar Avenue and seating is available under two large tents.
Arts, crafts, entertainment, kids’ zone and vendors fill the day to complement food and beverage offerings. To celebrate our walkable and bike-friendly community access to the festival is from the north side of the Vilano Bridge where the Nature Boardwalk ambles through the saltwater marshes leading to the Town Center at Poplar Avenue.
Nine separate entertainment acts will begin at noon and last until 8 p.m. Favorite musicians will include songwriters and local greats such as Dewy Via, Sam Pacettini, Amy Hendrickson and so many more. If you are a follower of your budding talented kids, Dance USA and the Legacy Irish Dancers are appearing at the noon hour.
