Include the September First Sunday Arts Festival in Your Labor day Weekend Plans

Posted in First Sunday Arts Press Releases at 11:37 am by Administrator

In September your summer activities begin to wind down as you realize that vacations are over and the daylight hours are getting shorter even though the thermometer is still reading high temperatures! But wait, summer can’t end before we all celebrate one more landmark holiday: Labor Day! And this year, Annapolis’ First Sunday Art Festival falls right before Labor Day on September 2nd. If you are in or near Annapolis, plan on making this outdoor, fun Art Festival part of your holiday plans.

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 …

Studio 180 — will perform aerial dance routines from noon to 5:00 p.m. in Stan and Joe’s side lot. This is a studio of many dance disciplines from ballet and tap to aerial.

Jazz Band Masterclass, with Jeff Antoniuk– will play from noon until 3:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is an internationally respected jazz musician and composer.

Annapolis Junction Big Band — will perform from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Your hometown Big Band plays all the great swing standards.

Around the Corner in Whitmore Park:

Melissa Cox Trio – From Celtic Fusion to Trip Folk, World to acoustic electronic, rock to classical choir, Melissa Cox is an old soul with a new sound – from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Labor Day Parade – View it from Whitmore Park from 3 to 5pm

We hope you can join the fun and festivities on September 2nd for Annapolis’ First Sunday Arts Festival. There’s only one more opportunity in 2012 to enjoy First Sunday’s activities on October 7 – so mark your calendars!
