This weekend: Menlo Park hosts 19th annual arts & crafts fest


More than 50 artists and craft makers will descend on downtown Menlo Park's Santa Cruz Avenue from Friday, Oct. 2, to Sunday, Oct. 4, to sell their art and showcase their original works at the 19th annual Sidewalk Fine Arts and Crafts Fall Fest. The sidewalk festival is free to the public and will be open Friday, Oct. 2, and Saturday, Oct. 3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Most of the artists and craft makers hail from across California, according to Dana Hale-Mounier, director of Pacific Fine Arts Festivals, which produces about 20 arts and crafts festivals across Northern California. Featured artists are photographer Bernadine Belaski-McGee, jeweler Francine Fiesel and sculptor Chris Efstratis.

The festival will offer a wide range of arts and crafts to be sold, including ceramics, wall art from fiber and other mixed media, paintings including watercolor and acrylic landscapes and abstract art, embroidery, handcrafted paper, handbags, children's clothes, women's clothes, silk scarves and men's ties, glasswork, jewelry, leather items, abstract painting, soaps and lotions, photography, and woodwork items such as toys and jewelry boxes, said Ms. Hale-Mounier.
