West Park Arts Fest allows all ages to come together and enjoy culturally diverse performances by some of the area's most talented dancers, musicians, and vocalists on two stages. FunkFest will be featured for the second year on the Music Stage with a headliner (to be announced) and a line-up of outstanding bands. FunkFest will include a dynamic range of funk-inspired music from Jazz-Funk and Fusion, to Rock and Soul. The dance stage showcases many dance styles and cultures. A performance by West Park Cultural Center's danceLogic girls featured on "CBS This Morning" last June, demonstrates their unique combination of dance and computer coding.
Arts Fest engages the young and seasoned in dance, art-making, and other activities, including narrated historical trolley tours through the Centennial District starting and ending at the festival. Over 70 vendors participate, including a juried Art/Craft Marketplace, direct sellers, food, and corporate vendors providing something for everyone.
