This year's festival will also have a youth day featuring performances and visual art by local youth artists, makers and performers at venues throughout the area, a performance by the Cardinal Sheehan Choir, and a silent disco.

When the festival closes, the festivities will continue at Artscape After Hours, which will be open Friday and Saturday night from 9 to 11pm.
