Festival. The Festival will take place Saturday, September 9th & Sunday, September 10th from 10am to

Held on the Library’s expansive front lawn and inside the library, thousands of visitors will enjoy a full
day of music, food, and the opportunity to view and purchase artwork from over 80 regional artisans
including painters, photographers, sculptors, custom jewelry makers, woodworkers, metalworkers, and
Festival admission is free and activities include face-painting, sand art for kids, Child’s Play Alpaca for
the whole family to enjoy, plus “Craft and Chill” where families can create their own masterpiece
inside the library. We will also be holding a silent auction and an artisan raffle during the festival. New

visitors the opportunity to witness artists bring their visions to life.
Auxiliary parking with shuttle service is available at the Center for Active Living on Nook Road (just
around the block from the Library). While at the festival, Plymouth residents can register for a library
card and anyone can register for the Reading Rivals contest.
