It’s time, once again, for one of the area’s longest running festivals. The 53rd Annual Sidewalk Arts Festival is Saturday, September 10 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Admission to this fun-filled day is FREE. There will be several great activities for kids in the Children’s Studio, located on Main Avenue, just east of the Washington Pavilion.

This year marks the 11th year the festival takes place on the downtown streets surrounding the Washington Pavilion: Main and Dakota Avenues between 10th and 12th Streets, 11th Street from Main west to Minnesota Avenue and in the parking lots south of the Pavilion.

More than 300 fine art, folk art, craft, and food booths are scheduled to take part, including 70 new vendors as well as past favorites. Student artists from Augustana University, the University of Sioux Falls and the University of South Dakota will also be featured.

The Great Western Bank parking ramp will be converted into a food court with several food and beverage vendors.
