    This might just be my favorite festival in the city. I love the new location, it was just what that under utilized part of the city needed. But I mainly love it because of the affordable art that I have been able to fill my home with over the years :)

    Get used to the new location, because they’re moving back to the old location next year. ;)

    What’s the grumble for?

    I’m also a fan of the current location. The tighter configuration makes it easier to walk from end to end and have everything closer together. Plus, it makes more sense to be in close proximity to the CMA and CCAD, both of which have more adjacent events to accompany the festival. The parking lots & garage at CSCC are a nice fit too.

    The riverfront location is long and stretched out from end to end, and it’s surrounded by government buildings (closed all weekend) and a river that isn’t really much to look at.

    The new infrastructure along the Scioto Mile will be nice, but doesn’t really add much other than aesthetics.

    Keep the Arts Fest in the “Creative Campus” area of Downtown!

    He’s upset about all the artists and volunteers.

    I think you meant don’t get used to it, but what do you expect from a Michigan fan ;)

    I’m not a fan of the location. Putting in in those parking lots makes it harder for me to drive past it.

    Yeah, but there’s enough deep fried food with the various food vendors there, so that should balance things out, right? ;)

    Oh, sorry. I thought you had a legitimate complaint. It was just a whiny *grumble* then.

    Another vote for the current “Creative Campus” location. It makes sense there, and I really liked the set up, in terms of walkability.

    However, needs moar food trucks.

    HA!

    Think the last time I went to this was the last time it was on the river front. Got a penguin coffee mug from someone.

    Would have been better if it was a chicken, come to think of it. The head / neck forms the handle, so it looks like you’re choking it.

    Walking around the office while choking the chicken would be priceless.

    yeah, it wasn’t worth more than a *grumble*. I’m stuck driving through that area frequently, so as quickly as I can get in and out the better.
