Art on the Square, one of Lodi's largest summer art events, will bring 50 artists to the lawns of Hutchins Street Square. Painters, jewelry makers, woodworkers and cartoonists will have booths set up to sell their creative pieces and offer a behind-the-scenes look at some of their craft.
Art on the Square showcases the fine art and high quality craft that captures the history, heritage, lifestyle and color of California and Lodi's wine country. This judged and juried event provides artists the promotional opportunity to meet with an audience of serious buyers and collectors at the Square.
For the general public, Art on the Square is the opportunity to enjoy art, entertainment, food and wine — all in one location.
Four restaurateurs, including Ruben Larrazolo from Alebrijes Mexican Bistro and Michael Warren from Crush Kitchen and Bar, will be at the event giving culinary demonstrations. Java Stop will sell coffee and A&W will serve Root Beer floats, in addition to other food that will be for sale.
Music will be different this year than in the past. Instead of a band playing the entire time, musicians will stroll through the booths as they play. Art on the Square will kick off at 9:30 a.m. with Red Circle Native American Dancing Circle opening and close with a performance by Patricia Moore.
The event also marks the first Run on the Square, which starts at 8:30 a.m. and goes through Lodi. The $30 entry fee includes a T-shirt. Walkers are welcome.
Where: Hutchins Street Square, 125 S. Hutchins St.
