Proctor Arts Fest is today

If you don't live in or near the Proctor District, you might not generally head there to hang out. It's tiny. It's cute. It's got a farmers market with beer and wine samples. It's got cheese samples at Met Market, which is enough for me to hang out there on a regular basis. Saturday, August 4, Proctor also puts on its annual Proctor Arts Fest-an art event to rival many larger art events in T-town.

While this shindig calls itself an arts fest, you'll find much more than art here. There is a dog show and parade, live music on three different stages, and a kids' area and family stage, too. The usual Proctor farmers market also overlaps with the arts fest so you can pick up some veggies, baked goods, try some wine, or catch more live performances there. For even more food options, the Bite of Proctor features tastes from some of the Proctor restaurants from stands in front of Capers, Chalet Bowl, Met Market, and Pour at Four.

But, of course, what's an arts fest without some arts? Arts fest fun includes a Juried Art Show, well over 100 arts and crafts vendors, and demonstrations of some unique art forms. These include thread and yarn spinning, sewing with a treadle machine, and sculpture by hand.

Face it. You won't find anything better to do this weekend.
