While strolling along Government and Jefferson streets, festival-goers can browse local shops and art vendors and listen to live music from the likes of Matt Lanius, Ship of Fools and Bonfire.
Also along the festival route, restaurants such as Bistro Byronz, Brew Ha-Ha!, Curbside Burgers and Monjunis will be serving plenty of food at the event.
Mid City Merchants committee member Liz Walker recommends attendees grab a brochure upon arrival and see where vendors are in relation to restaurants. Walker says it’s almost impossible to browse through all of the vendors and have time to eat within the four hours.
A total of 45 vendors will be participating, and about 150 artists will showcase their work through paintings, sculptures, jewelry, stained glass, dolls, wood work and other mediums, Walker says.
To get around the art hop, attendees have access to free shuttle services and two free Uber rides using the event’s code posted on the Facebook event page.
See below for the full list of participating restaurants and food vendors that released event information as of press time:
• Bistro Byronz‘s parking lot will be overtaken by live music, artists and a bar with drink specials.
• Brew Ha-Ha!will be serving up a wide variety of flavors of its famous cake balls.
• Brew-Bacher’s will offer shrimp cocktails and sandwich trays with muffulettas, ham and cheese, and turkey and avocado sandwiches.
• Calandro’s Supermarket and Curbside Burgerswill have more than 10 artists, a stage with live music, and food, wine and beer tastings in the parking lot. Curbside will be serving its burgers and shakes.
