Discover Arts Alive and the Grand Re-Opening of the 101 to be held in Solana Beach

“Discover Arts Alive and the Grand Re-Opening of the 101” is coming to Solana Beach on Sunday, Sept. 22. This year the award-winning Arts Alive event will celebrate on the revitalized Highway 101 as well as the versatile Coastal Rail Trail (CRT). Arts Alive is a must see event, featuring live musicians, modern dance troupes, theatre performers, plus, “Artopia,” fence artwork created exclusively for this year’s festivities.

“Artopia,” the one-of-a-kind artist creations displayed along the Coastal Rail Trail fence, will surprise and amuse viewers with their ingenuity and resourcefulness. Attendees will marvel at the colorful windglyphs and theatre stilt-walkers, while listening to musical groups playing everything from Blue Grass and Country tunes to Jazz and Pop music. The creation station will tempt the kids, old and young, to try out their creativity. The Trail will be adorned with art, music, and entertainment for all ages.

The shoppers, food and art lovers will appreciate the eateries, galleries, and shops beside the new sidewalks and gathering areas on the west side of Highway 101. The renovated Historic Highway 101 boasts a mosaic tile fountain, public art spaces, more parking, and convenient crosswalks for pedestrians to move across 101 from the Train Station and the Coastal Rail Trail. Plaza Street will be transformed into a friendly arena for people to gather and enjoy the chalk art and other artistic performances. Plans are underway for a “Taste of Solana Beach” involving the restaurants on the 101 with bands playing at various locations from Beachwalk to Boardwalk.

The City of Solana Beach, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Public Arts Advisory Commission invite everyone to attend this free, art and cultural event on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 11:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come to meet family, friends, and neighbors at Lomas Santa Fe and Plaza Avenue for a short ceremony to celebrate the opening of the revamped Highway 101, and then experience the surprises as you travel north towards the San Elijo Lagoon and loop around back along the award-winning Coastal Rail Trail.
