Art in The Park n’ Lot Festival
~ Up the Arts Multifest ~
“As well, the arts council is looking forward to presenting the Art in The Park n’ Lot Festival at the Bondar Pavilion in collaboration with Fringe North,” said Russ Raven, president of the Council’s board of directors. “And it will sponsor the Art Crawl, returning this summer.”
Up the Arts offers theatre performances, art displays and competitions, a book fair, buskers, musical performances, a block party, beer tents and a whole bunch of creative activities for kids.
Musicians, dancers, cultural performances and spoken word artists who want to try new things should apply for paying gigs at Up the Arts Multifest. Performance spots are available at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion on both Sundays of the multifest, on Friday August 10th – Sunday August 12th, and Thursday August 16th – Sunday August 19th.
Sundays will feature family friendly, all ages and cultural performers.
The music stages are a great opportunity for new musicians to find an audience and for established musicians to try out new material or genres, go solo or play and jam with people from other bands. With funding from Canadian Heritage and support from the City of Sault Ste. Marie, the arts council will allocate spots and pay performers.
