At the start of June, make your way downtown to the Scioto Mile for the annual Columbus Arts Festival. The three day fest (June 1-3) has a new location as it celebrates its 51st year, and is full of activities for kids.

The Hands On Arts Activities series will take place each day of the festival. The arts and crafts include creating a rainbow, designing a journal and making a glass bead. There will also be a performance of Johnny Appleseed on Saturday and Sunday. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family!

For more information on the Columbus Arts Festival and the various activities, check out columbusartsfestival.org. The site also has a listing of the artists and entertainment throughout the weekend.
