Artsfest on Walnut Street, the annual arts festival on Historic Walnut Street, is celebrating 35 years of art, food, fun and spring-time this weekend. It takes place Saturday and Sunday May 2 & 3 on Historic Walnut Street between Hammons Parkway and National Avenue. This year's festival features 130 artists from 16 states, over 80 performances, local food and more. As Springfield Regional Arts Council Executive Director Leslie Forrester says, "it's chock-full. You can't make a step without finding some sort of arts experience--whether it be a performance or visual art."
