Wilsonville Festival of Arts opens event to authors

The annual Wilsonville Festival of Arts will this year add literary arts – books and their authors – to the mix of visual and performance art. Authors from the local area and beyond are encouraged to apply for book signing and sales space at the event, set for the weekend of June 4th and 5th. The Festival runs Saturday 10 – 6 and Sunday 10 – 5 pm.

The Festival of Arts celebrates the creative spirit by featuring more than 100 visual and performing artists, student art show, activities for children, and ongoing performances on stage. The weekend kicks off with a community parade which ends up at the festival grounds in Town Center Park. The festival is free and has something for the whole family, attracting thousands of participants.
