This is a treat at the center of West Coast quaint. Beneath the Redwoods, in a town just about everyone in America would die to live in. The art part includes clothing, jewelry, sculpture, woodwork, painting, glass, and photography. But the real reason you might want to go to this is for such performers as the Matt Jaffe band (rock), Beso Negro (gypsy jazz), Laura & Anton of Foxtails Brigade (chamber/pop), and a children’s stage, which features magic shows, marionettes, The Gnome Puppet Show; Stories With Georgia, and Kids From Marin: Performing Arts Academy Sings and Dances, along with Hands-On Craft Time with Tia. The only problem may be parking and so you may have to walk a bit. But don’t let that stop you.
56th Annual Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival, Sept. 15 and 16, Old Mill Park, 10 a.m to 5 p.m. General Admission: $10; students and seniors, $5; children under 12, free.
