Westport Art Fair

The Westport Art Fair is a wonderful outdoor art fair held on September 9th, 10th, and 11th (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). The link above is not specifically about the art fair, but it describes the Westport area. Be prepared to browse through dozens and dozens of artists working in clay, acrylics, watercolors, oils, charcoal, pencils, metals, wood, jewelry, fiber & textiles, and mixed media. Plan on spending the good part of a day weaving through the colorful artists' stalls and the equally colorful crowd. Enjoy a little snack, dinner, or just an adult beverage at any of the interesting restaurants and pubs that are scattered throughout the area. There's usually live music playing there, too. Family friendly during the day, more adult-oriented when it starts to get dark. This is one of my favorite fairs each year!
