2017 Plano Artfest
The Saturday night Plano Artfest experience will be geared towards a more contemporary art crowd. It will include art installations curated by Dallas artist Joshua King from the Aurora festival, food trucks, an Artisan Lounge presented by Artisan Vapor Company, and a concert held on the Hub Streat Stage in McCall Plaza featuring local bands and regional headliner Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears.
Sunday's Artfest event will be the traditional, family-fun day for young families and art lovers of all types. It will include the free sidewalk chalk contest, Chalk It Up, and will feature performances from Plano’s best art and cultural groups on the community stage. There will be local food vendors, a makers market, and a Kids’ Zone with bounce houses and art make-it-and-take-it stations.
Collin College’s art department will be at the festival on both Saturday and Sunday, doing live demonstrations of pottery making and metal pouring art and hosting several interactive public art stations.
