Spend the day with your family and friends this May 16th from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM, exploring the historic North Park neighborhood at the 19th Annual San Diego County Credit Union Festival of Arts in North Park.
This annual free festival has grown into a local tradition that includes amazing local art, exciting live music and dance performances, eco-friendly activities, vendor booths and fabulous food.
On the forefront of the art scene, the San Diego County Credit Union Festival of Arts in North Park celebrates all types of art forms, and a live art element will be featured on Herman Street.
There will be something for everyone, including the kids. Our hands-on Kids Art Block offers children the chance to participate in a variety of interactive activities designed to stimulate and inspire their imaginations and create their own masterpieces. Kids are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of interactive art related activities all geared to teach and inspire young minds to explore their own artistic creativity. Learn how to craft with recycled items, hop around in a bouncy house, and take part in other fun interactive art projects.
All proceeds benefit North Park Main Street, the non-profit organization committed to the revitalization of the North Park Business Improvement District.
