The event featured art installations, live performances, vendors, and guided history tours by Chris Naffziger, local historian and author of St. Louis Patina.

Central Print offered their free Summer Print Studio from 10-1, with printmaking activities inspired by the 13th Street Community Garden. There were activities for children (and playful adults) including a bounce house and slide.

The festival attracted a large and diverse crowd, and the mid-80 degree weather was beautifully atypical for August.

From festival organizers:

We are working hard to create an event that is open and welcoming to all. Including, but not limited to: Artists and Vendors (to connect and create crossover/ audience share), and the general public of all ages/ gender/ sexual orientation/religious affiliation/race/families/youth.
