Formerly known as the Mayor’s Ball for the Arts, and most recently as the Mayor’s Celebration for Arts and Innovation, the Festival for the Arts is a showcase for the artists and organizations that make Riverside, CA such a vital artistic community. Performances, exhibitions and interactive art demonstrations run all day long and lead up to an evening of live music entertainment by local bands such as Royal Jag, Outside Voices and Summer Twins. Food by Tio’s Tacos, Gram’s Mission Bar.B.Q., Kabob*A*Que, Something Sweet by Serina, So So Kold Shaved Ice/Street Dogs, CapnBucky’s Treats and more will be available for purchase. A no-host microbrew garden will be operational all day and a full no-host bar by The Menagerie will be available in the evening. This is a unique event that raises money for the arts in Riverside. It’s also something you won’t want to miss.
