With COVID numbers improving the First Sunday Arts Festival is expanding on Sunday, June 6th from 50 to 70 vendors. The artisans will be on both the first and second blocks of West Street. You will find painters, photography, pottery, glass, candles, home décor, jewelry, textiles, and more. It is the perfect place to shop outdoors directly from the artisans. This event kicks off Annapolis Arts Week so plan to enjoy a week of fun in Annapolis Maryland.
Restaurants will have outdoor cafes as well as inside dining for when you are ready to take a break from shopping all the artists. It is also the kick-off of Paint Annapolis so don't be surprised to find dozens of Plein Air artists painting throughout the downtown area.
