On Saturday, September 24, 2022 from 2-6pm, ArtsFest: Art in All Dimensions takes the arts to new heights in the City of Rahway (literally!). With an array of performance artists showcasing their talents, including: a gravity defying aerialist, the skill and grace of a contortionist, the dance moves of Steppaz with Attitude and Rahway Dance Theater, as well as music from Sarah Teti, Sweater Pills, Stefano Catugno and Karickter. Visual Artists will have their creativity and talent on display and some of Irving Street’s local restaurants will show off their culinary skills with creations from their kitchens. With over 50 accomplished and amateur artists and local vendors displaying their work and selling hand-crafted items, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Those in attendance can help to create art as well with live art classes, demonstrations, and interactive community art pieces. Be sure to follow @Rahwayishappening on Instagram and Facebook for updates, info on artists and vendors and more!
