This year, 16 food tickets can be bought for $10. All food vendors at the event will only be accepting food tickets as payment.

Over 100 artists will be having their work on display all weekend for viewing and purchase. Sculptures, designers, jewelry makers, photographers and painters show off their best work and speak on the unique materials and techniques they use.

Arts, Beats and Eats will run 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Sunday, and 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday. Admission is free before 5 p.m.and $7 after 5 p.m. on Friday, $3 before 3 p.m., $5 after 3 p.m. and $7 after 5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday and Monday. Kids under age 3 are free.
