Rain or Shine!
This year, the annual Festival of the Building Arts takes you behind the scenes of the building trades and asks, “how do they do that?” Join as many as 25 master craftspeople and take part in hands-on activities during this exciting, interactive, fun-for-all-ages celebration of our built environment.
The Festival will feature a life-size, green-build playhouse as part of HomeAid’s National Project Playhouse. Built by Pardee Homes, the playhouse is being donated to the Museum and will debut in the Building Zone exhibition with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:15 am.
