Franklin Gearing Up For Taste of ArtWeek - Apr 27

Taste of ArtWeek is intended to give attendees a "taste" of what ArtWeek is all about. Nine sweet and savory food trucks will allow sampling of various cuisines from seafood to Italian and vegan ice cream to frozen cheesecake. Five craft beer and wine vendors, including Jack's Abby, Zelus, Crue Brew, Exhibit 'A', and La Cantina Winery, will offer tastes as well as full pours of their products.

A series of seven live dance and music performers, including MA State Representative Jeff Roy's band, professional musicians from the Berklee School of Music, and nationally-known Dean College Dance Company, among others, will give attendees a flavor for what ArtWeek performances are all about. 

Over 30 artisans will show their handmade wares in the juried Craft Fair, and a hands-on and demo tent, called The ArtWeek Pavilion, will allow festival-goers to try their hand at a selection of painting, drawing, origami, sand art, spin art, and other artistic projects. A fine art exhibition, hosted by the Franklin Art Association, will round out the festival.

Taste of ArtWeek is the kick off event to Franklin's ArtWeek, which includes almost fifty events being held from April 26-May 5, 2019.
