Continue the Celebration … at the July 5th First Sunday Arts Festival

Don’t stop celebrating after your July 4th picnic and fireworks show? Plan to keep on celebrating and come the very next day -- July 5th -- to Annapolis’ First Sunday Arts Festival from noon until 5:00 p.m. And like your Independence Day celebration, the First Sunday Festival is a fun-filled outdoor, free, family affair for all ages -- with live music, entertainment, and over 100 booths of art, jewelry, house wares, accessories and so much more. And since West Street is closed to cars from Church Circle to Calvert Street during the Festival, several restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the fun and people go by!
