The street festival, presented by the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce, will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, showcasing art in the form of jewelry, glassware, paintings, ceramics and photography. At Gourmet Island, food vendors will offer savory and sweet bites to sample and purchase.
Music on the stage at Fremont Park will range from jazz with the Doug Miller and Mike Keating Quintet to Singing Wood's marimba music. Glassblowing demonstrations will take place both Saturday and Sunday.
Free art activities for the children will be offered at the new Kids' Creative Center, sponsored by the city of Menlo Park's Community Services Department.
