The 50th Annual Columbus Arts Festival

The Columbus Arts Festival will celebrate its 50th year this weekend with hundreds of juried artists from across the United States, live music performances, arts activities for kids, and, of course, food vendors, making it the city’s opening outdoor summer event.

We’re broadcasting live today in the downtown Discovery District talking with the President of the Greater Columbus Arts Council and some of the artists featured at the Festival, as well as a COSI program connecting the arts with science.
