The Coupeville Town Council recently approved a special events permit for the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival from Friday, Aug. 10 through Sunday, Aug. 12.
The festival is prompting several road closures during the weekend. The closures begin the evening of Aug. 10 and include Coveland at North Main Street, Front Street at the intersection of Center Street, Grace Street at Front Street and Eighth Street and Coveland east of the entrance to Christopher’s, which will move to the post office during festival hours.
Several no parking zones will be in effect during the festival. Those areas are Seventh Street between North Main Street and Alexander, Alexander between Seventh and Eighth streets, Willkes between Seventh and First streets and areas identified by the Coupeville Public Works Department to protect town infrastructure.
Scheduling of personnel for event security is ongoing and the Coupeville Festival Association will cover the costs.
