When: Sat., Sept. 17 2011
This weekend marks the 12th annual Tremont Arts and Cultural Festival in Lincoln Park, a celebration of the neighborhood's diversity. On the to-do list: a juried arts show, noshes and nibbles from local churches and restaurants, and main-stage music and dance performances. For the kids, a children's area offers hands-on arts and educational projects, which should keep them busy while the parental units check out the info booths from community nonprofits. Today's hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; tomorrow's times are noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free, although you'll want to pack a few bucks for the food and some art. — Cicora 1208 Starkweather Ave., 216-575-0920,tremontwest.org.
