[ 0 ] July 31, 2015 |

1436299590_c731 Foo Fest, AS220’s annual summertime block party bash, returns to Empire Street in downtown Providence on Saturday, August 8th, from 1pm to 1am, bringing you 12 hours of music, art, performance, kid and family-friendly activities, local food and drink, and much more! Kidoinfo is proud to sponsor such a cool creative happening that inspires kids of all ages to make and experience art in the heart of the city.

All Ages activities planned outside! (Plus visit Mini Make Faire in the AS220 Black Box Theater!) Check out the fun here:

The Avenue Concept
Art Car! For the second year in a row, The Avenue Concept will have a car……yes, a REAL car, out on the street at Foo Fest. So what, you say? Well, I’ll tell you what….you can PAINT and DRAW on this car! ALL OVER this car! LEGALLY, I might add!

Flight Tube allows visitors to experiment with the movement of items in turbulent air.  The vertical air stream is generated by a large –carefully screened in- fan at the base of the exhibit, and directed upwards through a large, clear plastic tube.   A variety of objects may be tossed in bottom and watched as they spin, float, sink or fly in the wind.  Visitors can also alter their materials with scissors, by folding or by joining pieces together to continuously experiment with different shapes, weights or sizes.

City Arts
Crown making! Spice up your life and / or outfit with a Foo Fest Crown! Use paper, gems, markers, and doodads to make the crown of your dreams.

Providence Comics Consortium
Advice Comics! Come get advice from a PCC character! Last year’s famous advice booth returns! Stop by our booth outside of 95 Empire Street and ask your question, which will then be typed up and pneumatically rocketed upstairs to our professional staff. They are waiting to illustrate advice for you (and pneumatically rocket it back down!)!
