We’ll Toast to That

It’s not everyday that something or someone hits the centennial mark and is still around for the party. Well done, Creamery Building. The Creamery Arts Festival, held in the Creamery District, celebrates the building’s 100th anniversary August 17-20 with tours of its tower, a special outdoor art exhibit by Lush Newton and performances by the (all-human) Flynn Creek Circus in the vintage big top tent. There’s also the Playhouse’s signature outdoor performance spectacle, Elemental, featuring giant puppets, dancers, stilt walkers and lanterns, plus live music, a fermented food festival and more. That’s four days of family fun celebrating the building and the art community that’s thrived there for more than 40 years.

So, about that fermented food festival … Get pickled at the Humboldt Fervor Festival (the festival within the festival) on Saturday, Aug. 19 from 1 to 5 p.m. Try unlimited samples of cider, beer, kombucha, wine and distilled spirits, as well as cheese, kimchi, sauerkraut, bread and chocolate for a well-worth-it $40 at the door. While you’re there, check out demonstrations on making cider, sourdough bread, pickles and more. And there’ll be bands, dancing, food and high-flying, tight-rope walking fun with Flynn Creek Circus performing at 3 and 7 p.m. This fine showcase of the area’s fermented producers is a benefit for Playhouse Arts and Humboldt Made, so your dollars help keep quality art and culture programming and local makers/services alive and well in the community. It’s a gin-gin situation. What?

All events for the Creamery Arts Festival are free except the Flynn Creek Circus performances and Humboldt Fervor Festival. Tickets available at Wildberries and online at, along with a full schedule of festival events.
