girl-pink-hair-flower-cookiesIt’s unconventional. It’s unpredictable. It’s under-promoted—until now.

Boho Fest, billed as the Unconventional Art Festival, is scheduled from 10am-sunset Saturday, Sept. 21, in downtown Leesburg.

Boho is a free, one-day gathering of about 75 artists, artisans, crafters, makers, growers and musicians, according to organizer Leesburg Center for the Arts.

Attractions at the second annual event will include Body, Mind & Spirit Mini Fest, sponsored by Goddess Productions; a drum circle at 10am; interactive craft stations; and the Pressing Limits exhibit at Leesburg Center for the Arts, 429 W. Magnolia St.

The city also will celebrate indie music with performers Shema Shine, the 502s, Maple Sparrow, Wes Morrison and the Stray Hares, Anthony Leon, Trending Easy and J.MO.

Street parking on 5th and 6th streets between Main and Market streets will close at 4pm Friday, Sept. 20, and reopen by 11:59pm Saturday, Sept. 21, a city news release states. Through traffic on 5th and 6th streets will be closed at 5pm Friday and will reopen by 11:59pm Saturday.

The city will start closing parking spots at 10pm Friday as they become open on Main Street from 9th to 1st streets. Main Street from 9th to Elk will be closed to all traffic at 3am Saturday and will reopen by 11:59pm Saturday.
