Free, family-friendly, and promotes creativity? Now, that’s the kind of event I am happy to support! This week I am highlighting Arts in the Market.

Arts in the Market takes place at the Manchester Center Farmers’ Market, April 17th, 2:30-6PM. This event is being hosted by The Fresno Regional Foundation (FRF) with intention to increase Fresno’s cultural vitality by making the arts more accessible to the general public. Expect to see a diverse group of musical performances: mariachi music, Hawaiian dance, folklorico, and fiddling. Attendees will have the chance to participate in making a mural through Creative Fresno’s Mobile Mural project. And the first 200 people will receive a free food truck voucher!
