Fiddle OaksA Fun Thing to Do This July Holiday Weekend… Going to the Dogs at First Sunday… Sunday, July 7 from Noon to 5pm

The First Sunday Arts Festival is partnering with the SPCA of Anne Arundel County to celebrate our furry friends on July 7. For five hours – from noon until five — a portion of historic West Street above State Circle is closed to cars and transforms into a fun festival of live music, dance, art and crafts. The Festival, which continues around the corner into Whitmore Park, is free and a family affair for all ages and pets that are on leash. It’s the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon outdoors surrounded by talented performers, musicians, and over 100 booths of arts and crafts. Plus several of the West Street restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the fun and people go by!
