Berkley Street Art Fest

When: August 7, 2021 –We are currently planning for a socially distancing Berkley Street Art Fest.  Of course, our future depends on COVID-19 virus and what State and local safety protocols are in place in August, but we are cautiously optimistic we will be able to celebrate art in Berkley.
