Get an early start to the flurry of arts events still to come this fall at the 7th annual Art on the Ave outdoor festival in the East Sprague Business Corridor / Sprague Union District. With four blocks of the newly reconstructed section of East Sprague (from Madelia to Napa) closed to traffic, the festival hosts more than 40 local artists working across mediums, along with performances from local groups, a kids’ zone, and live music from the start of the event and into the evening, until 8 pm. Local businesses along the event’s stretch are also involved. Many of the artists featured this year are local, but others are coming from outside the Inland Northwest to share their creativity with attendees. Find updates on the artists to be featured at Art on the Ave’s Facebook page and website.
Sat, Sept. 30 from noon-6 pm • 1700-1900 blocks of East Sprague • Free • All-ages • facebook.com/ArtontheAve or artontheavespokane.com
