Estival Festival At AS220

(7.20) AS220 is throwing a summer party: The Estival Festival — an art fair extravaganza and music fest — is a celebration of this year’s major renovations and a fundraiser for AS220’s All Access Campaign to help pay for same. The fun will spill outside, but the bands are all playing on the indoor stages. (Facebook event.)

Over twenty performers will rollick the Main Stage and Black Box. An art fair will convene in Psychic Readings and outside on the street with over twenty vendors who will peddle their miraculous wares. There will be food and drink specials like “watermelon sangria” or an “Oh-boy-oh-boy-oh-boy that’s a good clam margarita” (the latter one’s made up). It’s the summer so let it be known that there will be an outdoor bar and seating and some fun-time summery installations. Bring a bathing suit, because we’re busting out the inflatable pools. Experience “windoughnuts” where residents of Floor 3 send down doughnuts in a basket to the street. Get wet. See friends. Shake hands with strangers. Become a stranger to yourself. Just have some fun, ok?

Bring a bathing suit — they’re busting out the inflatable pools. Resident Lifeguard on duty: Jason Curzake. Experience “windoughnuts” where residents of Floor 3 send down doughnuts in a basket to the street. Get your face painted all scary, or funny, or psychedelically.

Bands on tap include: Video Shoppe, Hairspray Queen, the Quahogs, Gertrude Atherton, FINE, Cherry Pit, and more! Free Polar Seltzer while supplies last.
