Milford's Riverwalk Arts and Jazz event heats up with live music and arts, and the fair welcomes Circus Hollywood's high-flying act to this  year's free entertainment.


Arts and music fill downtown Milford

Milford will be alive Saturday, July 24, with the Riverwalk Arts and Jazz event from 1 to 9 p.m. Located along the Milford Riverwalk, artists set up their tents at 1 p.m. as the music begins. This month, in addition to some talented visual artists, the day features Greg Shupe and Men With Issues, from Baltimore. The band is a multi-talented acoustic group performing songs from an eclectic range of musical genres, from old-time fiddle to bluegrass to swing, from country to folk to blues, from gospel to pop to original tunes. Following Men with Issues, Junior Wilson and the Movies will rock the Riverwalk until 9 p.m.

Circus comes to the fair

The fair is going for a red carpet-meets-big top feel this year with free daily performances by Circus Hollywood. Originating in Czechoslovakia in the 1830s, the Coronas troupe has preserved its traditional European flavor and mixed it with today’s theatrics and death defying stunts. Circus Hollywood has progressed from its initial aerial thrill show in 1952 at Atlantic City’s famed Steel Pier to include daredevils, animal trainers, clowns, aerialists and acrobats.
They will be performing adjacent to the sponsor lot.
