Last year, the Village Art & Flea drew more than 2,000 locals who shopped an amazing array of arts and crafts made by local artisans and fine artists, as well as fabulous vintage goods and bric-a-brac sold by Village residents. This year promises to be just as big with all the above as well as live music by up-and-coming bands, delectable food from area restaurants, games for kids, raffles, and so much more. This event raises awareness for the VNA and encourages the community to believe in and befriend the people around them. It also raises awareness for local talent while encouraging sales and awareness for area businesses.
