Looking for some local summer fun? Look no further than the second annual Inland Northwest LocalFest, a celebration of the region’s wide range of local culinary, musical and artistic talent. The festival features more than 100 local vendors, plus live music and food trucks. Among those vendors, you can shop for anything from hand-sewn clothes to gourmet pepper sauce; fine art to jewelry. Among the live music performances are River City Roots, DJ Daniel Royal, Loose Gazoonz, and Gin, Smoke & Lies. If you’re looking to satisfy a craving for either some classic fair food or some international cuisine, you’re in luck, too: LocalFest has tons of options, so there’s something for everyone, whether it’s Polynesian shrimp skewers or snow-cones. For the kids, there will be an obstacle course, bounce house, balloon artists, face painting and trampoline basketball. Come have some food and fun at LocalFest and celebrate everything local.
