"In celebration of the 56th Annual General Clinton Canoe Regatta, the Jericho Arts Council (JAC) has teamed up with the Bainbridge Chamber of Commerce, Golden Artist Colors, regional businesses and artists to create the Bainbridge Arts Trail - "Regatta Row". This year's theme, "Scenes of New York" will be displayed in an outdoor exhibition of artist designed, Adirondack style "Chairs and end tables". Each unique piece has canoe paddles incorporated in the design; the End table top is 20" x 20" square and has three paddles. They will be displayed on Main Street (Intersection of Routes 7 and 206) in historic downtown Bainbridge starting with the Streetfest on April 28 and on throughout May and then be auctioned at the Regatta to benefit the Jericho Arts Council. The iconic Canoe Regatta draws close to 15,000 people for Memorial Day Weekend and is the longest flat-water canoe race in the world, culminating at the finish line in Bainbridge.
On Saturday, April 28 from 2 to 4:30 pm, the Bainbridge Art Trail-Regatta Row will open with a dynamic Street Art Fest!!! Centering at Town Hall, 15 N. Main Street, the Jericho Arts Council Gallery Committee hosts the 4th annual opening of Regatta Row -Street Art Fest. The public is invited to a unique afternoon of art, live music and merchant hospitality. Save the date to come out with family and friends to "Meet the Artists" and listen to the 24 musicians playing all through town from Bob's Diner to Jerry's Inn. Due to their generosity, local restaurants including Bob's Diner, S & S Cafe, Rosa's Restaurant and Pizzeria and Jerry's Inn, will be serving a specialty item at no cost to the public. B & W.
