Back in 2003, when Mayor Menino launched (ähts): The Boston Arts Festival, the celebration of our city’s cultural life was a one-day deal. The event has grown into a three-day extravaganza highlighting work by more than 60 juried visual artists and live performances on two stages. Partcipants include the Boston Ballet, BalletRox (pictured), Melissa Ferrick, the Boston Typewriter Orchestra, Zili Misik, Gentlemen Hall, and City Stage in “A Kidsummer Night’s Dream.’’ Speaking of children, there’ll be a special area just for them with interactive mural painting, glass blowing demos, and more. Sept. 10, noon-7 p.m. Sept. 11-12, noon-6 p.m. Free. Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, Boston. 617-635-3911, www.bostonahtsfestival.com
