Frederick’s Arts n’ Action Festival set for Saturday

September 19, 2013

The 41st annual Arts n’ Action Festival is on its way. The event is set for this Saturday, Sept. 21, on the courthouse lawn for a day of great art, crafts, and jewelry, delicious food, and local entertainment. Beginning at 10 a.m., the festival will feature art of assorted media, including: jewelry, pottery, painting, photography, woodwork, and so much more. While you are out and about, enjoy lunch from a wide selection of food booths from various local non-profits. Throughout the day local entertainers will take the stage to serenade you with various music selections.

After enjoying the food booths and visiting artists from near and far, be sure to check out the Smithsonian Exhibit “New Harmonies” which is located in the Lois Long Center, just two blocks away from the Festival. You won’t want to miss this traveling exhibit about American Roots Music, and Sept. 21 is the last day to see it.

While you’re in town, be sure to visit the Frederick Public Library’s annual Book Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 124 W. Grand, as well as other Frederick treasures, including: the Crawford Collection, Pioneer Townsite Museum and Ramona Theatre.

Also this weekend, the WWII Airborne Team’s Hangar will be open to the public for tours. The team is conducting a training and work weekend, and will be instructing the newest recruits from Fort Sill. Jumps are planned for later in the day on Saturday. A special invitation is extended to those Frederick alumni who will be in town attending the many reunions.
