The Sounds & Sights festival might sound like a Miami rave, but to the contrary, it’s a family affair in Downtown Chelsea—two days and three nights of music, art and entertainment. The event kicks off on Thursday with a concert, headlined by the Ben Daniels Band at 7pm. Hit the Art Market Friday morning, gush over the Classic Car Show that afternoon, and then put on your dancing shoes for a country concert that night. Then on Saturday, peruse the Farmer’s Market before cuteness arrives with the pet parade. If a rave sounds appealing to you, well you’re in luck—the festival closes down with a dance party!

6pm. Thursday, July 23 to Sunday, July 25, 11pm. $5/cover for some events. Downtown Chelsea.
