Organizers are discussing how they can put on a safe, successful festival in 2013, and are asking for input from the community.
If the Coventry Street Arts Fair comes back in the summer of 2013, it won't be exactly as residents remember it, said Steve Presser, owner of Big Fun and marketing director for the Coventry Village Special Improvement District. Presser had organized a public meeting for Tuesday, Oct. 16, to discuss ideas for the possible fair but announced the meeting was canceled today.
