Press Release - Sept. 2018
What a great start! Athens Arts4All 2018 showcased a wide range of artisans, students, food vendors and performers. In total, over 6,000 people joined in the fun while celebrating the arts. We were also able to donate $4,500 to the art and music programs in Athens Area School District. This year we are aiming even higher! With a new layout, more artisans, free admission and expanding our support for the arts in our community.
The Second Annual Athens Arts4All will be held at Rowe Middle School in Athens, PA, on Saturday, May 4, from 10-5pm and Sunday, May 5, from 10-4pm in 2019. The mission of this event is to allow the community to celebrate the arts through exposure, experience and expression. As a non-profit volunteer organization, Arts4All plans to direct as much money and support as possible to the arts in our local schools and communities.
The Second Annual Athens Arts4All will be a lively two-day juried arts festival held at Rowe Middle School. Professional artisans, student vendors, musical performances and delicious food offerings will be the highlights of the show. Students will take the spotlight in artwork displays and ceramics demonstrations. Learners of all ages will be able to take part in on-site art classes. Community groups and school organizations will be on hand to share information.
Changes this year will include: FREE ADMISSION, a blend of indoor and outdoor vendors, an outdoor performance stage, additional art classes and a community art project for everyone. We anticipate even more student artisans and unique food vendors as well as FREE ADMISSION! Did we mention that it is FREE? Make plans to join us for the Second Annual Athens Arts4All May 4 and 5, 2019.
