ART on the Square & PAL Blues Festival on SATURDAY

ART on the Square Partners with PAL for the 7th Annual PAL Blues Festival this Saturday. Plus, a BBQ Competition and more fun for all!


This is a first!  ART on the Square will be an all day Saturday show.  But what hasn't changed is this is the 6th year that AOTS has partnered with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to put on this amazing event.  We believe ART & MUSIC are a perfect marriage, so when you combine that with making the whole thing a fundraiser for kids, you have hit a GRAND SLAM!  Plus, the ART will be wonderful, with some really cool metal sculpters, oragami artists, & textile artists coming from the Central Valley, and LA area to REDWOOD CITY to join our fabulously talented local artists creating jewelry, photography, textiles, garden and household accessories…PLUS a BBQ Competition….AND a DAY OF BLUES….is there any doubt where you will be this Saturday????  Read on for all the details and Be There and Be Square…


It's Baaaaaaack!  The Third of Four Fabulous ART on the Square shows.

Come out and see the fine Artists & Crafters showcasing their creations on Hamilton@Broadway while you groove to the 

7th Annual PAL BLUES, Art & BBQ Festival
