Batavia Welcomes Art in August
On Saturday, August 20th from 10:00 am- 6:00 pm the streets of Batavia will be shut down for the first ever, Art in August festival. Main Street will be closed to traffic between Riverside Drive and Third Street, and the Village of Batavia will turn into an Art Show. More than 80 vendors will be along Main Street selling arts, crafts and goodies. A few of those vendors include Art in August committee member Martha Enriquez who will be selling her Pine Lane Soaps. Other items you will see along the vendor line include handmade jewelry, pallet décor, stained glass and much much more!
Don’t worry about parking during your visit to Batavia. There will be plenty of free parking for everyone including the Clermont Sun lot, Fifth Third Bank, Chase Bank and the White Barn Lot. There will also be street parking throughout the remainder of the Batavia Village.
Food vendors will be keeping your hungry belly satisfied with sweet treats like Kona Ice, Sissy’s Sweets, Kettle Corn and Funnel Vision. To top it off, you will be entertained with live music in front of the Batavia Courthouse from bands like Coal Train Robbery, Steve Featherston and Rabbit Hash String Band. Explore outside Main Street to the Village Art House, which is owned by committee member Kathy McCoy Leone and enjoy craft classes including water color and paper play. There will also be a book signing at the Village Art House from popular author Dean Smittle.
Lastly, committee member Vicki Watkins will have Batavia’s newest and most popular shop Under the Star’s open during the Art in August show. There she will have amazing art pieces, jewelry and handmade furniture for sale. There will be plenty of vendors for you to explore and with this variety there will be something for the whole family to buy.
