Events will run both Saturday 10am -7pm, and Sunday 10am - 5pm on four blocks of San Fernando Boulevard between Magnolia Boulevard and Olive Avenue.
Visitors can expect to find various pieces of artwork such as paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber art, fine glass, woodwork, mixed-media and photography. As an added benefit, there will be nonstop live performances of local dance teams, rock bands, an improvisational comedy troupe, and other performances from Burbank's local school students.
