"Fine hand crafted items including garden ornaments, sea glass jewelry, pottery and children’s accessories" will take over the Town Hall Green Sunday, Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., said Emily Areson, Trumbull Arts Commission Coordinator.
"The juried show features over 65 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 artists will be delighted to talk to you about their works," Areson said.
The festival also features a Children’s Creative Center where children can create a number of crafts at no cost. It's staffed 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 singer Lori Vellardito at 11:30 a.m., followed by Emily Pisarra at noon," Areson said.
After the awards ceremony at 12:30 p.m., “Karen & Rob’s Salute to Broadway” takes the stage at 1:00 p.m., followed by the “Jerrod Cattey Jazz Quintet” at 2:30 p.m.
Food vendors will be “Paradise Island” the THS Golden Eagles Marching Band “Lou’s Kettle Corn” and new this year, “Christophe’s Crepe Truck.”

Participating will be the Discovery Museum, Majestic Theatre Restoration Committee and representatives from The Trumbull Animal Group.
The Nature and Arts Center will be next to the Children’s tent."The Arts Festival, cited by Fairfield County Connect as one of the best 100 reasons to visit Fairfield County, is a real part of the fall celebrations of this Community," Areson said.
