Live entertainment includes performances by Bitter Boar and AdamMarie. In addition music, food and children's activities, the festival also features artisans selling goods such hand-poured candles, handmade jewelry, and wooden and ceramic original creations.

Proceeds benefit the preservation of the Knapp Heritage Park and other historical Arlington landmark buildings.
