2013 will mark the 30th anniversary of the Montrose Arts & Crafts Festival, one of the oldest events of its type in California and the largest public event in Glendale.
Montrose Shopping Park Association sponsors this two-day festival running this Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 2, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
More than 300 fine artists, crafters, food vendors, California Certified farmers, musicians, and entertainers will make their way to Montrose on festival weekend. Some vendors come from as far away as Arizona and New Mexico.
The festival draws visitors from far and wide with a wonderful array of handmade crafts, jewelry, fine art, textiles, flowers, and much more.
Festival booths are located in the 2200, 2300, and 2400 blocks of Honolulu and the International Food Court and Montrose Harvest Market (Sunday only) are located on Oceanview Boulevard.
The Festival has grown into an event for the entire family and features live entertainment, a children’s activity area, and an expanded International Food Court with seating for one hundred people. Busy shoppers can sample everything from Hawaiian Rotisserie Chicken, Thai Food and Tamales to good old American Barbecue while enjoying live music.
