Friday, Aug. 23, 2013’s Lowdown

Humboldt’s Most Packed Week Ever” begins its two day end-o’-week peak Friday with the Creamery Festival, three days devoted to spreading the gospel of artsy community. City leaders have big plans for the neighborhood surrounding Arcata’s Old Creamery building and this weekend just may set the tone for the future. Let your Lowdown breakdown the ambitious day-by-day highlights below:

  • Friday: There’s been lots of lantern construction locally lately. The reason for that will become clear Friday night with Elemental: An Outdoor Pageant Spectacle, which includes a procession of giant puppets, stilt walkers and humongous shadow performance. Also, local one man symphony Gregg Moore will provide a live score during a screening of Buster Keaton’s The General. Oh, and then Ponche. That’ll be good.
  • Saturday: Creamery Fest’s most packed day includes double digit band-age on two stages (full schedule) as well as general festival boothiness and kid friendliness. The night concludes with a special performance under the big top tent by beloved violinist and Humboldt-native Jenny Scheinman and The Tiptons. Later, Los Angeles sketch comedy troupe Wet the Hippo makes with the funny, as if HumCo needed more this weekend.
  • Sunday: Festivities wrap up on the Sabbath with a morning performances by the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir and world famous Scotia Band. In the afternoon, hit up the Big Top Vaudeville Variety Show. Then collapse.
