Going to the Westerville Music & Arts Festival? Here's ticket info, parking and more – The Columbus Dispatch

The Westerville Music & Arts Festival is returning in person this month for the first time since 2019. 
Now back in full force for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s an excitement around the community for the 48th annual festival. 
Stacey Rusterholz, communications and community outreach manager for the  Westerville Area Chamber, was once a volunteer for the festival. Now she’s in charge of coordinating the festival and feels the anticipation for its in-person return on Saturday and Sunday. 
“There’s been a lot of excitement and energy from our artisans and performers and community members who have been waiting for two years for this to happen again,” Rusterholz said.
The festival will take place at Heritage Park & Everal Barn, 60 N. Cleveland Ave.
Entry is free for any child younger than 10 and is $1 for all others. Events are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. each day. 
Here is a list of what to expect, parking information and a look at some of the performers.
