Stockton is celebrating Arts Week Oct. 12-21 with a host of events that offer a little bit of something for everybody.

There will be musical performances ranging from rock bands to chorale to hip-hop, along with ballroom dancing, live poetry and a fashion show.

Many of the events are taking place downtown at Janet Leigh Plaza, but there are also happenings at the Stockton Arena, the Bob Hope Theater and the Children’s Museum.

The event, in its third year, has grown tremendously. Wes Rhea with Visit Stockton said it offers plenty of free attractions for both kids and adults.

“It’s happening throughout the week where folks can get hands on into art,” he said. “We have paint night. I think it’s a unique opportunity to get kids and youth into art, too, and have them kind of do some hands-on activities.”

The big finale will come on Sunday, Oct. 21, when Weber Point in Downtown Stockton opens up for the Collide Festival with artist workshops, music, food, and in the evening, an overhead drone light show.
