Since 1986, Mayfair Festival of the Arts has been bring the arts to the community. The annual four-day festival celebrates a wide range of disciplines ranging from painting, dancing, photography, sculpture, music, wood working, jewelry, and so much more.

While exploring the grounds of the festival, visitors will enjoy 100 juried artist booths, a fine art gallery, three stage filled with performances, 20 food vendors, and three beer & wine vendors.

For kids, there’s also a hands-on art project space as well as performances geared just for the little ones.

The event is made possible by the help of more than 500 volunteers who welcome tens of thousands of guests through the gate. On-site parking is free, and tickets are available either in advance or at the door. Children 10 and under are admitted free of charge.

The 2016 Mayfair Festival of the Arts runs Friday, May 27 – Monday, May 30.
