The Open Arts & Music Festival is free, all-ages, and open to the public and takes up the entire city block in front of the historic Alex Theatre in Downtown Glendale, with an anticipated attendance of 10,000 people. In this lively setting the community enjoys exploring and buying unique arts and crafts in the Arts Market, which is open from 3pm to 10pm. In addition to the arts market, there will be live music performances curated by Spaceland Presents, a beer garden with craft beer selections curated by Brewyard Beer Co., a temporary public art installation, and all-day activities for kids. We close the city block in front of the Alex Theatre, and welcome 10,000 people to enjoy live music and art for the day!
