Upcoming Waterford Events

FIFTH ANNUAL RIVER'S EDGE ART WALK
Friday, October 7
4:00 to 8:00PM
Main Street & Milwaukee Street
downtown Waterford

Waterford's River's Edge Art Walk (REAW) will again transform the streets of its downtown Heritage District into a festival of fine arts created by local and regional artists. Now in its fifth year, the Art Walk will be held on Friday, October 7, 2016 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM. Local businesses and community organizations will host 25+ artists who will display and sell their latest creations. The event is hosted by Waterford's Main Street program, Absolutely Waterford.

The Art Walk will feature art work of almost every type, displaying a wide array of mediums. Art Walk-goers will be treated to weaving, jewelry, photography, ceramics, pottery, oil, pastel, watercolor and acrylic paintings, wood art, fiber and wearable art, metal sculpture, mixed media, digital art and photography.

Five of the participating business venues will also offer live music. In addition, an old-fashioned trolley will convey shoppers up and down the Art Walk route. Long-time Waterford resident and historian, Bob Gariepy, will be on board, dressed as Sam Chapman, one of Waterford’s first settlers. Bob will share brief stories and anecdotes about Waterford’s unique people, buildings and history along the way.

Downtown restaurants, including Cafe 213, Thai Italina, and Marty's Diamond Restaurant and Uncle Harry's Ice Cream Shop, will be open to welcome hungry Art Walkers. You will be invited to enter your name for a free prize drawing at Absolutely Waterford's office at 206 W. Main Street where a 50/50 raffle to benefit Absolutely Waterford will also be available for those who are interested. No need to be present to win either the prize, or the raffle.

The Art Walk is free and covers roughly six blocks on Main Street through the heart of Waterford's Heritage District. A map to guide you through the Art Walk will be available at each participating business. Each business will also have an identifying marker at its entrance.

Downtown parking is ample and completely free. Park anywhere you like along Main Street, the adjacent side streets, in the Municipal parking lot just off of 2nd Street, north of Main Street, in the St. Thomas Church parking lot, or in the lot adjacent to Waterford Union High School Entrance #1 which is also a Trolley stop.

Absolutely Waterford is grateful to its volunteers, sponsors and friends. If you would like more information about the River’s Edge Art Walk, or to receive AW’s newsletter, please call Cynthia at 262-534-9000, or email: director@absolutelywaterford.org
