From Cedar Street to Trafton Street, Sixth Ave will be blocked off to traffic to accommodate the annual artistic frenzy. This year's Art on the Ave will feature about 100 vendor and nonprofit information booths - many with artistic slants. Art at the festival will range from oil on canvas to metalwork to glass art to jewelry and beyond. Local artsy businesses will also be here, including 253 Collective, Hilltop Artists and Box Top Vintage. Even with so many booths, this is just the beginning.

One of the new additions to the festival this year is the Tacoma Filmmakers Showcase at the Baptist Church.

There will be four outdoor stages to spice up the festival - Metro Parks Family Stage, Jazzbones Stage, O'Malley's Stage and Maurice The Fish Records Stage.

If art, movies and music aren't enough to keep your attention, in front of O'Malley's Irish Pub, Art on the Ave will also feature a skateboarding half-pipe and a youth basketball tournament. Chalk artist Steve Platt will be on-site creating sidewalk masterpieces.
