“I had been visiting the Arts Fest because I was in middle school, so it was a bit bittersweet to say goodbye to that which was an yearly tradition for me and my loved ones,” said 27-year-old and lifelong Norwalk resident, Jeremie Blais.

The festival featured just below 100 artists from all around the nation, who offered attendees a broad selection of art from ceramics, paintings, and photography to handmade furniture, wearable art and art foods.
