Weekly fair
opens on Kauai

This weekend marks the opening of the Kauai Products Fair, a weekly addition to the shopping and eating scene on the Garden Isle.

The market will open with 35 vendors selling arts and crafts, produce, plants, collectibles, food and clothing. It will be open Saturdays and Sundays, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in North Kapaa on Highway 56, next to the Red Dirt Shirt store. In fact, the Red Dirt establishment, along with a driftwood art gallery and a small gift shop near the marketplace, will form its outer limits.

Parking is plentiful and free.

Richard Jasper, president of the Kapaa Business Association, says the market takes as its model the Hilo open market, which draws a steady base of tourist and resident traffic every week. He's hoping eventually to have 50 to 60 vendors, representing a range of made-on-Kauai and made-in-Hawaii products.

For information on attending or vending, call (808) 246-0988.

Artspree museum's gift

The Tangentz Performance Group will perform a new, original, site-specific Butoh piece, "Petri Dish," 11 a.m. July 15 at The Contemporary Museum's Artspree 2000 open house.

The open house, running 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is the museum's annual gift to the community and will feature demonstrations, as well as dance, music and storytelling for all ages.

Artspree encourages exploration and discovery. For example, in "Petri Dish," choreographed by Lori Ohtani, five dancers demonstrate their individuality and commonality while buffeted by the forces of nature.

Admission to the museum and all performances that day are free. There will be free shuttle service from Roosevelt High School and hourly from Waikiki's King Kalakaua Plaza. Parking in the plaza will be free from the Kalaimoku Street entrance for Artspree-goers,
