It is once again time for the Memorial Day Weekend edition of the Paradise City Arts Festival which is held at the Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton, MA May 23 to 25, 2015. The them this year, as it was for the Marlborough show in March, is “Up in the Air” – challenging artists to use imagery that defies gravity.

In addition to all of the fabulous art is the music and food presented at the festival. On the music side will be Juke Joint Jazz on Saturday, Sugar Ray and the Bluetones on Sunday, and vocalist Evelyn Harris on Memorial Day Monday. And for art aficionados who are also foodies, there is the opportunity to meet the chefs from Sierra Grille, Local Burger, India House, Spoleto, Amber Waves, Pizzeria Paradiso, The Great Wall, Mama Iguana’s and Bart’s Homemade Ice Cream.

This is a great annual festival that is not to be missed.
