PrintAugust brings us hot and humid days, and this month marks the height of summer. It means vacation-time for many and fun-time outdoors with friends, family, and even your dogs! If you find yourself in or near Annapolis, Maryland on August 4th, you won’t want to miss coming by First Sundays Art Festival.

First Sunday is a festival that celebrates many forms of art – with live music, entertainment, and over 100 booths of art, jewelry, house wares, accessories and so much more. It is a fun-filled, outdoor, free, family affair for all ages. And since West Street is closed to cars from Church Circle to Calvert Street during the festival, several restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the fun and people go by! The Festival fun begins at noon and goes until 5:00 p.m. – a full day of fun for everyone in your family.

Live Entertainment on West Street …

  • Wholesome Food Market – Local farm stand, organic meat service and real food service –  12:00 & 5:00 p.m. in Stan & Joe’s side lot
  • Jackson Murphy – an alternative country/bluegrass band-  from 12 noon – 1:30 p.m. in Wiseman Park
  • Andy Poxon – a wiz on the guitar and a strong voice, he propels us into the Blues future — from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park

Around the Corner At Whitmore Park:

  • The Walking Sticks – acoustic roots rock featuring local 22-year-old twin brothers. from 1:00-2:45 p.m.

Come join the fun and festivities on August 4th for Annapolis’ First Sunday Arts Festival.  Sponsored in part by: LeafFilter and SunQuest Living.

There will be two more opportunities to enjoy First Sunday activities in 2013: September 1, and October 6.
