The 11th annual Stone Arch Festival of the Arts returns to the East Bank riverfront Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., more than 200 artists' booths will fill Father Hennepin Park and line Main Street. Four performance stages will host musicians, storytellers and theater productions. Top local chefs will also give cooking demos and samples, and there will be hands-on children's art activities.

And just in time for Father's Day weekend, the "Art of the Classic Car" show will show off 150 mint vehicles.

The festival is free to the public. For a schedule of events, directions and parking information, or to apply to be a volunteer or performer, see www.stonearchfestival.com.
