The Druid City Arts Festival, a free event that hosts and highlights a collection of local artists, musicians and food vendors, will return to downtown Tuscaloosa this weekend.

The festival was launched in 2010 by University of Alabama freshmen looking to promote local arts and culture. Beyond anyone's expectations, it attracted more than 7,500 attendees and has grown each year.
