The Apple Cart is sponsoring the screening of the documentary Dog Days at 1:30 and 3:00 pm at Centenary United Methodist Church, 411 East Grace St. “DOG DAYS follows two unlikely business partners as they challenge the status quo by offering Washingtonians a gourmet alternative to the ubiquitous hot dog.”
What's the only thing that can make food and beer better? Music! What kind of music? Live Americana, Roots, and Bluegrass music! Notch 9 takes the stage at 12 p.m., The Atkinsons at 1:45 p.m. and East of Afton at 3:15.
5. Exhibits and pop-ups
