The Columbia Festival of the Arts will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday on Courthouse Square and the surrounding streets. This year’s festival will host 40 live performances on three free stages. Audiences can enjoy jazz, modern dance, Celtic music, African drumming, juggling or fire-eating performances.

The event — which is put on annually by the Office of Cultural Affairs — will also include free art activities for kids, food vendors and displays by local art organizations.
