More art and music, free and for all ages. It’s the 8th Annual Pasadena ARTWalk on October 12th.

ARTWalk is a juried art festival with over 30 artists showcasing their photography, painting, ceramics, and new media. More than 3,000 works will be on display (and available for purchase).

El Molino Avenue will be the site for this opportunity to have a “leisurely stroll through the open-air market” while the sounds Afrotango of Ensemble’s Tango-jazz ride along a Santa Ana breeze.

The El Molino Jazz Stage will also have scenes from As You Like It and songs from Into the Woods performed by The McKinley School, Performing Arts (11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m.).

Little Junebugs crafting studio partners with Big Draw L.A. offering “Doodlebugs & Jitterbugs,” where everyone is invited to draw, and “then see it come to life when it transform into your very own hand puppet!”

Hands-on activities continue with canvas painting presented by Wine & Canvas (“A painting class with cocktails!”), a Chinese hand drum art workshop by Barnsdall Art, and making one-of-a-kind art pieces with recycled materials.
