This Sunday, the Gardener of Bath is hosting an Art Fair from 11am -6pm.
It's really more than an Art Fair. In addition to fine artists and makers selling their wares, there will be live bands (7 of them!!) and food trucks, making it a showcase for creativity in Akron.
Among food vendors who will be present are Zydeco Bystro and The Beachcomber trucks-- perfect for sampling local flavor!
"I feel like Akron is this weird creative hot spot, but there is so much 'distance' between making art and people who buy art, says organizer Heather Girves of the Gardener of Bath, "I would love to help close that gap and shine a spot light on shopping small and local."
She continues, "At this Art Fest people will be able to find some really great local treasures, anything from gourmet pork rinds and corn on the cob to hand crafted jewelry, locally made candles, and some fantastic vintage and reclaimed finds."
