Also shop for handmade jewelry, pottery, soaps, paintings and many more creations by the region’s talented artisans.
Thursday!Fest takes place on Second Avenue East between 1st and 2nd Street East, in front of The Museum at Central School. It’s a bit like a carnival that’s been crossed with a craft fair, a food court, a concert, and a “beer garden”. Thursday!Fest can be a lot like going to the old town square. The ages and professions are mixed from babes-in-arms to grandpa’s gawking. Old friends meet and new friendships form.
