The Alliance for the Arts is now accepting applications for Fall for the Arts 2016. This 14th annual free family festival will be held from 10AM-3PM on Saturday, October 15 on the field at the Alliance. It’s a fantastic way for artists and cultural organizations to engage with families from across Southwest Florida. Artists can demonstrate their talents and sell their work, and organizations can present their upcoming seasons. Fall for the Arts features live performances throughout the day, with plenty of fun games, craft stations, face painting and great food from local vendors. This year the festival will be expanded thanks to a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
Online registration must be completed by August 15, 2016 to ensure inclusion in event marketing materials. The fee is $50 for Alliance member artists and organizations or $70 for non-members. The fee includes a covered 10’x10’ vendor space, 6 foot table and 2 chairs. Visit www.ArtInLee.org/FFTA for more information or to register online. Fall for the Arts 2016 is sponsored in part by Pediatric Dentistry of Fort Myers-Dr. Tim Verwest, Caloosa Tent & Rental, Publix Supermarket Charities, the News Press Media Group, and Lee Family News Magazine.
