AUBURN, Ala.- The 23rd-annual Auburn CityFest will take place Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Kiesel Park. All ages are invited to spend the day shopping from over 100 arts and crafts, food and nonprofit vendors. Enjoy live music and participate in a variety of interactive events.

The Children’s Imagination Station will feature stilt walker Todd Key, the Bama Air Dogs, the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center, the Auburn University Raptor Center, KoreaFest and the Taiwan Center. Kids can enjoy crafts at Auburn Parks and Recreation's ArtFest tent. Auburn University College of Nursing will provide its Sensory Inclusion Vehicle to assist families if a child or adult becomes overstimulated. The College of Nursing will also provide its Tiger Babies Breastfeeding Support Tent to help provide mothers with a clean and private place to nurse their babies. Aubie will also make an appearance.

CityFest attendees will have the pleasure of enjoying music from several artists throughout the day at the pavilion. Outside The Inside, a three-piece band, will play original rock/pop songs along with space-themed cover tunes by artists like David Bowie and more.
