Columbus Arts Festival
For most cities, a lively riverfront is a piece of art in and of itself. For Columbus, it's just the beginning. The Columbus Arts Festival assembles more than 300 local and national artists along the city's scenic riverfront to sell creations and show off their wares to the public. Visitors can browse and buy just about anything, or try their hand at creating art through various festival activities and enjoy numerous demonstrations. The show lasts three full days, and features six different stages that showcase music, theater, dance, and spoken word art. Roaming performers and their friends also move around the festival grounds, putting on a mobile show for attendees. Food and drink vendors—including some of Columbus’ top-notch restaurants and food trucks—will be on-hand throughout the weekend festival.
