GOSHEN —  The annual Arts on the Millrace will take place along Goshen’s scenic waterway from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 15. The event will showcase fine art ranging from painting to woodworking to metalwork. Admission is free of charge.

“A number of really outstanding artists call the Michiana area home,” said Arts on the Millrace co-founder and event director Adrienne Nesbitt. “Goshen has become a regional arts destination in recent years, and Arts on the Millrace is the perfect showcase for their creations.”

In addition to the nearly 40 individual artists in attendance, five Goshen arts collectives will also be represented from the Hawks, Goshen Arts Council, The Local, Goshen Painters Guild and Goshen Photographers Guild.

Again this year, Arts on the Millrace is proud to showcase work from “Up and Coming Artists” ages 12 to 19 who have shown excellence in their art form and are interested in learning and growing in their craft. Much of the young artists’ work will be available for purchase.

Throughout the day, there will be free concerts, kids art activities and games, live demonstrations and local food vendors. Goshen Brewing Co. beer will be sold, and there will also be a variety of wines to sample. Wine slushies will be available, too.

Bands slated to perform at this year’s Arts on the Millrace and their scheduled performance times are Backyard Brass at 11 a.m., Anna PS at 12:30 p.m., Synchrony at 2 p.m., Brides of Neptune at 3:30 p.m. and Shiny Shiny Black at 5 p.m.
