Stone Arch Festival of the Arts music lineup announced


For fans of local art and music, the Stone Arch Festival of the Arts, held over Father's Day weekend, is a must-see event. Over the past few years the music lineup has gotten bigger and better, thanks in part to Stone Arch music booker/photographer/Cake in 15 blogger Stacy Schwartz, who culls the cream of the local crop to fill four stages with great music. Add to that over 250 booths of local artists who are hand-picked by a jury to be featured at the event, an art car display, and plenty of activities for kids, and it's one helluva way to kill a hot summer weekend.

This year's Stone Arch Fest runs June 20-21, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day in Father Hennepin Park. See below for a full schedule of the music at this year's festival. Poster design by Jeff Hagen.
