First off, one of my favorite places in Lansing is this quaint little section of town.

With some of the best and most unique restaurants all within mere feet of each other and an art (Arts Night Out) and music scene (JazzFest) that rivals some cities, Old Town is begging you to come and immerse yourself in some art and culture.

Art Feast In Old Town is back for 2021

The last time this event happened was back in 2019 and it was my first experience. I was blown away.

After a year hiatus because of Covid-19, Art Feast is back in Old Town and it's this weekend (Saturday, August 21st from 10 a to 5 p).

Old Town welcomes artists and food trucks from around the state for a one-day free, art festival on Turner Street. This festival is quickly becoming a destination for emerging artists.
Nearly 100 artists will line Turner Street in the heart of Old Town for the festival. We'll also have several food trucks. Stay tuned for more information on specific vendors. (Art Feast 2021)
Bring your appetite as there will be food trucks and lots of vendors. Come hungry to enjoy some amazing food and bring some cash. If you're gonna get some art, make it local. I myself got 3 pieces last year: 2 are in my office and one is in my guest bathroom.

Please stop by, look, shop, and support Old Town, the artists, and the vendors. They're really depending on you after last.

And if you're so inclined, they need volunteers to work the event as well. Give back and help out. If you're down, follow the link below.
