What's your favorite part of Festival Of The Arts.  In the past I've heard people joking that its name should be changed to Festival Of The Food because there is so much of it there.  Talk about arousing your sense of smell.  Festival offers it all up!  Whether you are looking for Italian, German, Vegetarian, Ribs,  Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, etc., you can find it all at Festival!
Festival Of The Arts weekend is coming up and it's Grand Rapids largest annual outdoor event, celebrating its 43rd year, honoring the arts in West Michigan.  There will be dozens of food and artist booths that stretch from Calder Plaza to Rosa Parks Circle.  There will be local musicians and dancers performing on six indoor and outdoor stages.   Festival Of The Arts is completely free and is supported by more than 20,000 volunteers.  If you want to find your favorite booth, or food vendor, or musical act, before you head out to Festival, visit Festival Of The Arts website for everything you need to know.  PS My favorite part of Festival?  People Watching!  You will see all kinds so be sure to bring your camera for those memorable moments.
