Classic Cars added to stART's Spring Line-up

stART on the Street encourages Worcester to support the local economy & buy handmade.

WORCESTER, MA May 08, 2012 – Worcester's premier arts festival stART on the Street is adding a new feature to its traditional repertoire this spring. On Sunday, June 3, stART will host its first classic and custom car show.

"We see classic cars as a form of art and are excited to include them in our festival," said stART Co-Director Tina Zlody. Over 150 area artists and crafters, live music, school groups, food vendors and kids' activities will also be a part of the spring event, which moves to Green Street in Worcester's Canal District this year.

In 2011, more than 75,000 people attended stART's three festivals, which have always featured local artists and crafters showing and selling their handmade wares. This June, the team of coordinators and countless volunteers is excited for a change of venue and a new element, which will allow area restaurants and businesses to get involved with the event.

"Our Spring event has been a more mobile festival than our other events," said Zlody. "We enjoy being able to move around the city and bring attention to up-and-coming areas of Worcester, and try out some new features while we're at it," she continued. Zlody also mentioned that the change of venue would offer stART the opportunity to become a more 'urban' street fair, utilizing parking lots and side streets.

The annual stART on the Street: Spring Edition will be held between 11am and 5 pm on Sunday, June 3, 2012, with a rain date of June 10. The family friendly and free festival takes place on Green Street, between Temple and Madison Streets. Area street parking is available, and $1 parking will be available at Union Station.
