ARTSFEST is a fun-filled, family-oriented street fair that will feature a great line-up of diverse music, performances, art activities, artist booths, info tables from various community groups, art-related vendors and other retailers. There will be art activities for children, a silkscreen demonstration, and sidewalk chalk drawing. In the Art94124 Gallery there will be a benefit exhibit auction with a variety of artwork for sale.

Some additional ARTSFEST highlights will include:

Cyclecide and Los Banos . The Heavy Pedal Cyclecide Bike Rodeo is a club of alter-bike mechanics who love bikes and building stuff. In the name of art and carnival-like merriment they will be constructing some of their “pedal powered kinetic sculpture” along Fairfax Street, and will bring some of their zany altered bikes. Their mariachi-country-punk band Los Banos will provide a lively
backdrop for a portion of the festivities.

The Charles Unger Experience. Anyone who has followed the Bay Area Jazz scene knows Charles Unger as one of the most distinguished
sax players around. Sometimes referred to as “one of San Francisco’s best jazz musicians” Charles will be joined by a number of other talented jazz players, including Sam Peoples. “The Charles Unger Experience generates exciting jazz on many different levels, where familiar genres stream forth on a collision course with improvisation to produce a new musical experience for both the artist and the audience.”

Bullet Proof Space Travelers | The Bullet Proof Space Travelers, comprised of an all-star cast of Bay Area DJ’s including DJ Quest, Eddie K,
Eddie Def, DJ Marz, and DJ Cue, are one of the Bay Area’s longest running scratch teams, and are arguably one of the most prolific crews out
there.

The Seastrunk Brothers. are a singing quartet of brothers who grew up in the Bayview. The men—typically in their trademark red shirts and black pants—are true performers with their smooth voices, Tempation-like steps, and tight choreography.

Danza Eztli Xicauha. Aztec dance group Danza Eztli Xicauha (which means strong blood) are traditional Aztec dancers originally from
Mexico, and now reside throughout the Bay Area.

Cougar Cadet Corps. This award-winning drum corps includes elementary and high school students from around the Bay Area. Based
in Alameda, the mission of the group is to motivate youth to become better citizens, to develop leadership skills, and to enhance their
creative abilities.

open at ARTSFEST, and will be on view from June 6 through July 3.The pieces will be available via a silent auction for the exhibit’s duration. All pieces will start with an opening bid of $50 and all proceeds will benefit future exhibits and
