The visual arts are just part of ArtsFest of course: Check the calendar to read about tomorrow's author fair at the Faulkner County Library, and more music, dance, a craft-in, the Conway film festival, poetry readings and more in the days to come.

Let's see: there's a Hendrix College football game tomorrow as well, the annual meeting of the Arkansas Archeological Society at the Hilton — Conway is going to be one busy place!
