Festival of the Arts



News &


Welcome to Festival 2020! We have a full schedule of workshops and events to share with you this year. As in previous years, you will find several options for accessing information in this booklet. Because we offer such a wide array of events you will find a table of contents by genre as well as a full-month calendar that can be removed and posted some-where handy at home or work.

February in Michigan offers us special challenges in terms of weather, sometimes in regard to entertainers’ ability to reach us, and sometimes in regard to our own ability to reach events. Last year we were forced to reschedule a few events because of the harsh weather. We will put can-cellations and reschedule dates on the website and also on Facebook. Please join us on Facebook - it’s a great way to keep up with what is in store each day and also to see photos after events.

Many of our workshops have limited seating capacity so we ask you to pre-register for the event. We do not have a single registration contact or site because of the variety of people and places hosting, so be sure to check on the page of each event for pre-registration information and sign up early!

For Festival 2020 we are again offering a piece of public art to the community, this time a mural to be installed on the J.C. Penney building on Michigan Ave. Please join us for a presentation about the work on Feb. 29th at Artworks. You will be able to watch the artist paint the actual work this summer.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and donors who make this festival pos-sible. We are truly blessed to live in a community that is so committed to celebrating the arts. Enjoy this month of celebration!
