First Sunday Arts Festival on Sunday August 7th

Posted in First Sunday Arts Press Releases at 7:01 pm by Administrator

First Sunday Arts celebrates 15 years of promoting the Arts in Annapolis. In August 2001 the seed was planted for a new arts event in Annapolis after two art galleries (ARTFX gallery & 49 West Coffeehouse, Winebar & Gallery) on West Street starting hosting art receptions at the same time on the First Sunday of each month. Combining the 2 art receptions brought larger attendance to both gallery’s monthly art receptions. By spring of 2002 other businesses on the first block on West Street joined in hosting art receptions, live music and artist demonstrations on first Sundays of the month and branding the day into a marketing campaign called First Sunday Arts Festival.

Today the First Sunday Arts festival attracts between 7000 and 10000 people each month for shopping at 130 local and regional artisan vendors on West Street between Church Circle and Lafayette Street and in Whitmore Park on Calvert Street in Downtown Annapolis. It has become the premier place in the region to purchase a wide variety of local and regional produced artworks. There is a wide variety of items to shop from including handcrafted jewelry, Pottery, glass, clothing, purses, cutting-boards, leather, iron-work, Woodturnings, furniture, Sculpture, Photography, Paintings, garden art, home decor, gourmet foods and more.

The festival will is also packed with a wide variety of entertainment with music groups performing though out the day, plus face painting, BalloonSculptures and Magicians for the kids.
