The "Antiques, Arts, Crafts and More" street festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 12 on Church Street between 13th and 14th streets, and will feature a variety of hand-crafted items, including wood, quilts, dolls, soapmaking, and antiques.
Connie Kovolenko, co-chair and owner of Akulina's Antiques, said a similar community festival took place four years ago and had a great turn-out. Organizers decided to resurrect the event this year.
"I think it's going to be nice. We've been pleased with the response that we've gotten," Kovolenko said.
The festival coincides with An American Celebration, an old-fashioned event at Old Economy Village.
Kovolenko said the hope is that people will visit the street festival, then head inside the grounds of Old Economy to enjoy a day of pre-1950s antique cars, storytelling, strolling musicians, food and more.
"I think people are going to enjoy being able to participate inside the fence-- to do things that are happening in the Village--and also outside to be able to walk the street and look at the different kinds of arts and crafts."
