Spinners from Sunshine Fibers explain their craft during Muscatine Second Saturday – June 2016

The inaugural Muscatine Second Saturday event last weekend was a FANTASTIC success! Thanks to everyone who came down to enjoy the evening of music, art and entertainment with us in downtown Muscatine! We had a lovely time with all of you.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with our event, Muscatine Second Saturday is a monthly arts and music street fest held on Second Street in downtown Muscatine from 5-8 p.m. on the second Saturday of the month from June through October. This year’s remaining dates are July 9, August 13, September 10, and October 8. The fest is presented by CBI Bank and Trust and the Muscatine Journal in collaboration with the Muscatine Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The event features food and handicraft vendors set up in the parking spaces along 2nd St., allowing attendees to walk on the sidewalk in front of our incredible downtown storefronts as well as through the center of the street, right in the middle of the action. The event still has vendor spaces available for future events, which you can learn more about on our vendor page muscatinesecondsaturday.com/vendors.

Second Saturday also features multiple talented musicians playing acoustically on the sidewalks as well as a variety of other live entertainment! In June, we had unicyclists and a tightrope for people to try out their balance on! There was also a chalk area for people to create their own street art in and we saw some beautiful work.

You can see more videos about the event on the Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Youtube channel and you can see a gallery of photos in another blog post.
