Any time is a good time to visit Tacoma's Proctor Business District, but this Saturday, August 3, the 18th annual Proctor Arts Fest will give an extra 10,000 people a great reason to make one of the city's most charming neighborhoods their destination. With the intersection of 26th and Proctor as it's hub, this delightful event spreads out to provide room for 160 vendors, three music stages, a demonstration area, and more. The fun takes place between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
The Arts Fest committee has been meeting and planning for a year, all to provide another great experience for those who attend. Each festival surpasses the one before it.
"Come by to experience art in many different forms," said Nancy Frederick, who co-chairs the committee with Eugene Kester. "We have local musicians, a juried art show, a film festival, artists and crafts people selling their original works."
The juried art show represents 60 artists displaying 85 pieces. Kids activities and a demonstration area are other attractions. For a great slide show of the festival, by ZenDezignz, click here.
Kester added, "The Proctor Arts Fest is a family friendly community event celebrating the arts."
