Another year, another fun-filled month of events surrounding Saturation Fest! Starting with TONIGHT! So, if you don’t already have plans to make it to Riverside Arts Walk, now is the time to ditch those other plans and scurry downtown for some good stuff going on tonight.
Walk around downtown and check out some of the art galleries that will be featured in later events, stop by the Life Arts Center from 6-9 and pick up a cupcake sold by sweetbean to benefit Saturation Fest!
Join us after for the mini pre-show and NoNoNo Arts Walk after party at Crescent Jewell! Come enjoy the fabulous drink specials and outdoor painting hosted by the one and only Jon Roach! Come listen to live music by VCR Monster and dirtRAID, appreciate some good art by Cat Cult, Rick Rodriguez, Dan Nguyen, and Amanda Millar.
