Weekend plans? Check. Polk Museum of Art’s free, two-day festival, Citizens Bank & Trust Mayfaire by-the-Lake, is back next Saturday, May 13-Sunday, May 14 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

What we’re looking forward to

Strolling around Lake Morton while admiring and shopping 150+ artist booths that showcase a variety of mediums. Think: painting and sculpture, jewelry and photography — and everything in between.

What’s new

In addition to the artists’ booths, this year’s celebration will include a robust daily event schedule, including fun activities for everyone of every age, like:

  • “Kids Collect” — a kids-only tent where they can purchase their own artist-donated artwork at a nominal price.
  • Free hands-on art activities for children of all abilities at the Kids Zone tents.
  • An exhibition “Blast from the Past: Mayfaire Selection from the Permanent Collection” on display in the Murray/Ledger Gallery, highlighting past festival winners at the Polk Museum of Art.*
