Shelter at the Brunswick Outdoor Arts Festival This Saturday

Looking for something to do this weekend? Come and visit Shelter at the Brunswick Outdoor Arts Festival. We're raising a timberframe on the mall (i.e. the grassy area on Maine Street in the middle of downtown), and we'll also have lots of tools, books, and Shelter staff on hand. Downtown Brunswick is also a great place to spend your Saturday.

In addition to Shelter, there will be music, dancing, artists, and good food. More from the TimesRecord:
The Brunswick Downtown Association (BDA) will present its fifth annual Brunswick Outdoor Arts Festival on the sidewalks of Maine Street and on the Brunswick Mall from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

More than 100 artists and artisans are expected to take part in the juried art festival, which will feature painting, sculpture, mixed media,   graphics, drawing, photography and fine crafts.

Awards will be presented to the Best in Show, People’s Choice and Best in Category.

The festival also will offer theater performances, dance teams, mimes, weavers, and live music on a stage area in front of Bank of America on Maine Street.

JimmyJo and the Jumbol'Ayuhs will perform from 10 a.m. to noon. Swing a Cat is scheduled to perform from noon to 2 p.m., and Bits and Pieces will take the stage from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Roving musicians will perform along Maine Street and on the Brunswick Mall. David Bullard will host a Maine Summer Songfest concert at the Brunswick Mall gazebo from noon to 3 p.m., with the Latin band Soundwavz, Shanna Underwood and Lauryn Hottinger.

Activities for children include face-painting, balloon art, interactive music with Sharon Pyne, juggling and hula hooping.

The Shelter Institute plans to raise a barn frame and provide an opportunity for visitor participation.
