Fourth Annual Jonny Z Fest This Saturday!

On Saturday, from noon to 5 pm, make sure to stop by the 200 block of Shields Avenue (in front of Joe's Inn and Shield's Market) to celebrate art, music, and community in the RVA! Tons of local art and craft vendors will be there from the Bizarre Market along with food from Joe’s Inn, Shield’s Market, Lamplighter and more. WRIR will be hosting local musicians including Josh Small, Photosynthesizers, and No BS! Brass Band. This event is family friendly and FREE! Ten percent of all arts and craft sales will go towards ART 180.

Two super talented friends of mine will have a table there selling handmade cards and recycled palette picture frames, along with a few of my own handmade things!

RSVP on facebook here.

More about Jonny Z (1980-2007): Artist Jon Zanin was a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, and had become a fixture on the art and music scene in Richmond. He helped run the Bizarre Art Market near the VCU campus and had worked at a number of restaurants, including Joe’s, where he waited tables. After his death in 2007 at age 26, The Jonny Z Fest was created to honor his spirit and promote art, music, community and friendship in Richmond.
