Woodland Art Fair Offers Family Events

woodland-arts-fairSchool may start in August, but the whole family can enjoy one last weekend of summer fun at the Woodland Art Fair at Woodland Park, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 17-18.

The Lexington Art League partners with the Department of Parks and Recreation the third weekend of each August to host a juried art fair featuring the work of more than 200 artists.

The event features live music, delicious Kentucky food vendors and interactive arts activities for the whole family.

Look for the “LAL Big Tent” to enjoy storytelling, music, dance, theater and visual art activities alongside your kids. A separate Kid Zone, presented by the Explorium of Lexington, also will include kid-friendly fun.

Free parking shuttles to and from the park are available at the Lextran Transit Center, the Phoenix parking lot (behind the library), American Founders Bank and the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Or ride your bike and check it at the Bike Check station.

A Baby Station with a diaper changing area and private area to nurse your baby will also be on hand.

The Fair is sponsored by the American Founders Bank. Event hours are 10-6 on Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday.
