Shares the Day with the Annapolis Labor Day Parade September 4th 11am-5pm

This Labor Day Weekend the Annapolis Arts District along West Street in downtown Annapolis will be packed with activity on Sunday September 4th. The newly expanded First Sunday Arts festivals will fill West Street with 130 artists and crafters from Church Circle to the Loews Annapolis Hotel with fun and unique shopping from 11am to 5pm. In the middle of the days festivities the annual Annapolis Labor Day Parade will start around 3pm on West Street near Amos Garrett and continuing up West Street to Calvert Street. With these 2 popular events being held simultaneously on West Street you expect a full day of fun and art along the street.

We suggest you start your Sunday morning early in Annapolis Maryland with brunch. West Street has several places that are popular with foodies for brunch including  Miss Shirley’s Cafe, Annapolis, Metropolitan Kitchen and Lounge, BAROAK, 49 West Coffeehouse, Winebar & Gallery, Stan and Joe’s Saloon and Rams Head Tavern Annapolis.

After brunch you will be ready for shopping from some of the regions best local artisans starting at 11am when the First Sunday Arts festival begins. Look for vendors lining West Street and Whitmore Park selling a wide range of fine arts and craft.  Vendor items to shop from including handcrafted jewelry, pottery, glass, clothing, purses, cutting-boards, leather, iron-work, wood-turnings, furniture, sculpture, photography, paintings, garden art, home decor, leather goods, gourmet foods and more. Also check out the local galleries and shop along West Street including one of the streets newest stores, Sparrow. The selection of shopping at First Sunday Arts seems to be getting better year.

When you are ready for a break from shopping stop by a food truck or one of the many cafes along West Street. There is also a lot of free live music on September 4th
