Downtown Columbus

The Angry Wiener will be there and so will Habeeba's Bellydancers. But if you're too excited, the Paddy Wagon will likely help you calm down. Or, you stay calm and Well Mannered while you lounge back to listen to the Salty Caramels while licking your own Salty Caramel. It's all good, and it's all at Columbus Arts Festival.

No denying that Columbus offers awesome art - music, word, paint, food and many other media that you don't even know you missed. So, it's cool that GCAC sets the stage (okay, riverfront) for a weekend-long art extravaganza.

Whether you gravitate toward emerging artists or one of the 280 nationally acclaimed experts, the 2014 festival offers something for... well, everyone.

Stroll along the Scioto Mile for blocks and take in art, entertainment and amazing people watching.

Can't get enough? Lucky for you GCAC offers a Friends of the Festival VIP Package. If you need to take a little rest between exhibits, relax in comfort and style in the private oasis of the shady courtyard at the Cultural Arts Center. Act quickly though if you want VIP status. Those packages start at $75 and need to be purchased before the event.

No matter how you want to take it all in, you definitely want to save the date this weekend; June 6 - 8 promises to be a weekend of discovery.
