Step back in time to a slower, gentler era at a festival presenting delicious food, splendid art and crafts, and topnotch entertainment--the best the Shenandoah Valley has to offer, and a free gift to the community from the Staunton Performing Arts Center.
This year, PAC 'n the Streets covers three blocks in the heart of town with both the two-level East Beverley Stage (at Market St) and the West Beverley Stage (between Augusta & Central) featuring a continuous kaleidoscope of music and dance, magic and merriment.
For 2016 there will be more food vendors featuring regional and ethnic cuisine, more art and artisan booths, more strolling street performers, and lots of fun prizes in the Everyone's-A-Winner Drawing. Event goers will enjoy an entire block of interactive and educational activities for children to be enjoyed by the whole family.
New this year will be a mini petting zoo featuring rescued animals. Local merchants will also be offering engaging and creative happenings in their places of business.
