Trumbull Arts Festival set for Sept. 13

Fine handcrafted items including garden ornaments, sea glass jewelry, pottery and children’s accessories are among the works that will be for sale on the historic Trumbull Town Hall Green, 5866 Main St., as the Trumbull Arts Commission hosts the 37th annual Trumbull Arts Festival on Sunday Sept. 13, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., rain or shine.

The juried show features more than 65 fine artists and crafters from the tri-state area and beyond. Hundreds of pieces of fine artwork, photography and sculpture in various media will also be for sale.

The festival also features a Children’s Creative Center where children can create a number of crafts at no cost. The center is manned by the Trumbull Community Women and is open to children ages 3 and up, accompanied by an adult.

Day long entertainment enhances the festival, beginning with Harmony on the Sound at 11 a.m., followed by singer Evelyn Sload at 11:50.

After the awards ceremony at 12:30, Studio Rio takes the stage at 1, followed by Survivor Swing Band at 2:30.

Again this year, the brick walk at Town Hall will be the site of several community groups handing out information and explaining their mission and programs.

Among the participants are the Discovery Museum, Bijoux Theatre, and representatives from the Trumbull Animal Group.

The Arts Festival, cited by Fairfield County Connect as one of the best 100 reasons to visit Fairfield County, is a real part in celebrating this community.
