Saturday May 3, 2-5pm
as part of Dogwood Festival 2014
The 29th annual Dogwood Festival celebrates the richness and diversity of the Coshocton County visual arts scene with a new 5K Urban Art Walk event. The Walk will wend a way through downtown Coshocton, across the three rivers, to Roscoe Village with stops at six arts venues. From 2-5pm Saturday, May 3, a selection of food will be served at each stop to keep walkers (or drivers as the case may be) energized.
The local shopping experience thrives on the personalities of the staff. Trekkers will not be disappointed here; all proprietors on this walk are artists in their own right. Children and well-behaved dogs are welcomed and encouraged. As with most Festival events, the 5K Urban Art Walk is free.
