The 'Burg is rich in culturally-diverse arts, so don't forget to add a few of our many local offerings to your must-see list. Begin your day browsing the work of a diverse group of artists by gallery-hopping through the city, stopping to see the rock glass sculptures at Creative Etchings, to bustle through Larkin Arts' marketplace, to soak in the work of local artists at Oasis Fine Art & Craft's exhibits, and to participate in an art workshop at the Spitzer Art Center. And, if your stroll through Harrisonburg's art shops and galleries have you feeling in a particularly artistic mood, try your hand at making your own unique piece of pottery at You Made It! in Harrisonburg's Historic District.

As a location rich in history and culture, Harrisonburg is home to several museums, each filled with its own unique stories. So, continue your exploration of the arts right where you left off in Downtown Harrisonburg by stopping through a few favorites, like the historic Virginia Quilt Museum, the exhibits-only Valley Turnpike Museum, or the for children only without art Explore More Discovery Children's Museum.

Working up an appetite? Stay downtown and dine at Clementine Cafe, which not only provides diners with unique menu choices and vegetarian options made with local ingredients, but also an environment inspired and influenced by the arts. You'll be surrounded with vibrant artwork as you dine and may even catch a live musical performance from emerging artists that frequently play on the restaurant's stage area.

Complete your exploration of the arts at either the intimate Court Square Theater or grandiose Forbes Center for the Performing Arts, where tickets will grant you a night of the best entertainment in town. With a continual cycle of independent and foreign films, live music and concerts, theatrical performances, dance presentations, comedy skits, and much more, either venue will be sure to provide you with a performance that caters to your tastes and interests.
