Once again the city of Chelsea is opening up this summer for Michigan’s premier weekly festival, Sounds and Sights.

From June until August, the public can enjoy the sounds of some of the region’s best musicians while taking in the sights of beautiful downtown Chelsea. Artists will be performing at separate staged areas along with other activities like children’s entertainers, a juried sculpture walk, outdoor movies and plenty of great food and retail options from local shops and restaurants. The stellar music lineup spans from bluegrass to rock and features popular acts like Dragon Wagon, Isosceles, Dave Boutette and more! The highlight of the summer season is the Sounds & Sights Festival on July 26-28, which will encapsulate the entire Thursday series in one fun weekend.

(Look for more details on the festival in Current’s July issue.) For a schedule of activities and music visit the website or check the Chelsea Festivals Facebook page. 6:30-8:30pm. Downtown Chelsea. 734-433-2787.
