Now in its 16th year, the Waterloo Arts Fest serves to celebrate the Waterloo Arts & Entertainment District's appeal. This year's fest, which takes place from noon until 7 p.m. on Waterloo Road between East 161st Street and Calcutta Avenue, features more of the same mix of music, food and art that has made this into the neighborhood's signature event. More than 40 bands will perform and there will be food trucks and special art exhibits. Admission is free. (Niesel) waterlooarts.org.
