June 20-21: Marin Art Festival at the Marin Center

Before the Marin Center’s lagoon fills with reflections of Ferris Wheels and nightly fireworks, settle into the relative quiet at the Marin Art Festival this weekend. In the shadow of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Marin Center, over 250 fine artists will be on hand showing, discussing and selling their work. Festival food includes Louisiana gumbo, Greek salads, French pastries, Southwestern chicken sandwiches and, naturally, grilled Marin oysters. The musical lineup includes Latin and Cuban fare on Saturday, courtesy of Fito Reinoso, Ray Obeido and Patricio Angulo, while Sunday’s given over to the swing sounds of Swing Fever, Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums and the triumphant return of Lee Press-On and the Nails. It’s all happening Saturday–Sunday, June 20–21, at the Marin Center. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 10am–6pm. $10. 415.388.0151.Gabe Meline
