The Fuller Moon Arts Festival celebrates the convergence of performance, art and nature with a two-day festival at the magical lakefront setting of Mountain Lake Park in Warwick.

Suitable for all ages, it takes place on Saturday, Aug. 26, and Sunday, Aug. 27, from 3 to 9 p.m. both days.

The festival invites guests to experience interactive art displays set around the park, listen to live music, watch dance performances and join artists in hands-on making in the park’s art studios.

It features a curated artisan maker market, an outdoor bar and a tasty selection of farm-to-table food prepared by local chefs and served throughout the day.

On Saturday, as the sun goes down, visitors can sit by the lake and watch the premiere of Brigid’s Well, a site-specific piece based on Celtic mythology performed by Warwick Dance Collective.

Then they can join in the fun with Brasskill, a party brass band.

On Sunday renowned New York City-based Forces of Nature Dance Theatre will make a special appearance.

As the moon rises and children catch fireflies, the festival ends with a lively traditional Irish music session around the campfire from Katie Linnane and friends.

The Fuller Moon Arts Festival is presented by Wickham Works and the Warwick Center for the Performing Arts. The diverse range of artists and performers are selected to appeal to families, art and music lovers, and those looking for an entertaining day out in a beautiful setting.

Tickets: $15 adults, $25 two-day pass, $10 children (6-18) and seniors (65+).
