Anyone looking for some fun? We are super excited and this is shaping up to be one of the best festivals of the year. You can expect a lot, and we wanted to lay out a bit of what you can expect.
The Art Market
The art market will be featuring over 60 artist vendors. They will be selling hand-made and unique goods including paintings, prints, photography, stained glass, sculptures, jewelry, and much more!
Join Us and Paint Our Sculpture
The Mt. Airy Arts Alliance has been awarded a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council to create a temporary public art piece. You can come out and help us make our sculpture! Members of the community are being asked to help paint the sculpture, it will later be lit on Main Street.
Art for Your Ears!
Art is more than just paintings and sculptures, music is art too! Luckily the organizers of the art fest understand this and they have booked some great local talent. All music will be hosted by DJ HP. Here’s the schedule:
The Aloha Boys
Playing at 10am, The Aloha Boys start us off with some tranquil Hawaiian music. You’ll be ready for a luau by the time their set is through!
Celebrating Kamehameha Day 2017 at the National Botanic Gardens in Washington, D.C.
Coming onto stage at 11am, local duo Park Valley will be delivering some great acoustic pop and rock vibes.
American School of Inspiration
The American School of Inspiration will come out and dance at noon. They are a Damascus based dance school that specializes in Hawaiian and African styles.
Saturday Advanced Modern, someone is always matching! We had two sets, but Emily really didn't want to match. Ahahahah
The Dirty Middle
The Dirty Middle is lead by singer Adrienne Smith who the Frederick News Post has claimed as “one of the best voices in Frederick County”. They will be playing at 12:30pm and play pop and blues tunes.

The Little Luau
We mentioned that you would be ready for a luau after the Aloha Boys, well come to the Little Luau! While it’s geared towards children, there’s something for everyone. There will be a bubble performance, the beach, the Carroll County Public Libraries’ Bookmobile, a photo booth, and much more.
Something to Eat
You’re going to want to come with an empty stomach. Local food trucks will be coming from across the state to serve up their tasty delicacies. The food providers are:
- Wanderly Wagon: They serve gourmet beef hot dogs along with a variety of toppings, salads, and shaved ice.
- Taco Bar: They sell tacos of course!
- Lemon Squeezers: Fresh and sweet lemonade, what more could you ask for? They’re also known for their fried oreos and funnel cakes.
- Mike’s Gelato: Summer’s starting to heat up, why not grab some gelato to cool off?
There will also be a beer and wine tent.
Foodtruckers be busy, sometimes forget, but today I was clever enough to grab a growler of this saison at Mad Science…
The festival will be on June 22nd from 3am to 3pm. It will be at Watkins Park located at 615 Center Street Mt. Airy, MD 21771.
