Thousands of people gathered in downtown Gainesville last weekend to partake in the 36th Annual Downtown Festival & Art Show.
The festival featured unique work from artists who came from around the nation to display their material. Painters, ceramicists, sculptors and an abundance of other creative artists were present for the show.
A variety of food vendors filled the streets. Nonprofit organizations also spread awareness about their charities. The festival included activities for children such as live shows and painting.
“When we were kids growing up, there were a lot of people playing around my dad all the time and some of those people were Ramblin' Jack Elliott, The Dillards, Hoyt Axton and Pete Seeger, of course, but those were all people in our lives who were family,” says Guthrie. “They influenced me as a human, and then their music was just around, all the time…. That was just the soundtrack to us growing up.”
