This year's event will include new features such as "food as an art," educational art workshops and a Juried Art Gallery. For the gallery, artists may select one piece that will be juried to exhibit in the salon-styled tent, according to the release.

The popular Plein Air Content is also set to return, in which artists will compete for $200 in awards. The contest will be hosted by Easton-based oil painter Adriano Farinella. 

Organizers also unveiled the winning poster design, created by artist Kristin Longo.

Riverside Festival of the Arts is free to attend.
