The Columbus Arts Festival is one of my favorite festivals of the year and this year did not disappoint. This year was my first time at the festival at their new location on the Scioto Mile Park in downtown Columbus. It was also my first time at Scioto Mile Park. I have to say the new location is great! The park has a great music stage and the park fountains were a hit with the families.
One of my favorite things at festivals is marketing campaigns. I love getting free samples. Today, the first tent that caught my eye was the Green Giant tent. All I had to do to score a bag of their new Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips was dance….so I did my signature “I can’t dance” dance. The chips are Zesty Cheddar flavored, and are mighty tasty!
Joe and I wandered the many unique and diverse art vendors. We found many pieces we would have loved to bring home, however, this year, wedding planning is taking precedent. Next year will be our art purchase year, and we begin the exciting process of decorating our home together. Back to the art. There were sculptures made out of glass, bicycle parts, bottle caps, and more. Along with jewelry, pictures of all types of media, accessories, clothing, and our favorite…food trucks!! There was a whole street of food trucks. Of which we samples foods from many of them.
We also had the pleasure of being chosen to participate in the Columbus Arts Festival satisfaction survey. It was great to share our thoughts about how great the festival was, and how much we enjoyed the atmosphere. It’s also good to see that the festival takes their planning seriously and values their festival goers opinions.
La-Z-Boy Sofas had a great tent display at the arts festival. Complete with their newest lines of sofas and salesmen wearing suits that matched the crazy couch upholstery. Joe of course was jealous since I told him he and his best man can wear any color suit to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, and their suits would have been perfect. hahaha. The salesmen were great, even took a photo with me.
Joe made our purchase of the day, when we saw from a distance a stand selling one of his favorite foods…Bacon! And not just any bacon…Bacon Salsa! The salsa is Ohio made from Seasonal Selections in Waynesville, Ohio. The salsa was so tasty we purchased some for our Father’s day cookout next Sunday.
If you also enjoyed the festival this weekend, tell us what your favorite part was, we’d love to hear it!
The festival was a great way to end our weekend. Now for a relaxing evening to hang out with our dogs.
Have a great week everyone!
