Black Swamp Arts Festival is this weekend

BOWLING GREEN, OH (WTOL) - This weekend downtown Bowling Green will be filled with visitors for the Black Swamp Arts Festival.

The festival brings thousands of visitors every year to experience live music and visual arts.

Festival organizers say there are still volunteer openings. Anyone who is interested can sign up here.

"We are really pumped about this festival. We have one of the greatest lineups of musicians we've ever had, and we've had great music forever! And that's before we even talk about the artists," said festival chair Bill Donnelly.

The weekend will feature live music from a variety of bands. The festival also has a youth arts tent and a high school chalkwalk. Festival organizers love watching young artists discover their love of art.

"It's really great to see their words come to life and their passion come to life," said organizer Kate Kamphuis.

The festival will close many streets in the downtown area throughout the weekend. Main street between Clay and Pearl will be closed all weekend.

Additionally, parking is limited both on street and in city lots. Shuttles will be available from various areas around town including the Wood County Fair Grounds, Bowling Green High School, BGSU and Meijer.

All streets and city parking lots will re-open on Sunday evening when the festival is over.
