Columbus Arts Festival Seeks New Food Vendors
The Columbus Arts Festival is looking for a few new food vendors for their 48th annual event taking place on June 5, 6, and 7 this year. The festival will once again be held near CCAD in the Discovery District as construction on the riverfront continues over the summer.
I’ve always thought that the culinary arts were underrepresented at our Arts Festival. Does anyone have any suggestions for gourmet, artisan food vendors that they would come out to support?
