Focused on discovering hidden talents, co-chair of the event Kiley Casper said, “We want to encourage everyone from the youngest to the oldest to come and share your family-friendly talent, whatever it is. We know the region has many wonderful performing artists. Arts Fest is an annual celebration of all the arts and we hope to draw talent in multiple categories whether it is dance, vocalists, musicians or bands, or even drama, storytelling or stand-up comedy.  This is an opportunity to appear before an audience and receive helpful feedback from our judges.”

Casper continued, “We’re especially excited to add a specific category for garage bands this year – groups just emerging or performing only part time for the joy of the music. We have had a good response from local bands and we want to encourage their participation by giving them a separate competition category that better suits their talents. We expect this festival to grow each year and become a highlight of the summer. Being held at the Community Center at the War Memorial gives us ample space for a stage, featured entertainers and a powerful talent competition all in one accessible location.  We hope the community will embrace this celebration of the arts and come out for a day filled with the best and brightest of Central New York.”

The talent competition will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with prizes awarded by 1:30 p.m.

Performers are invited to register online at www.CNYArtsCenter.com or call 315-592-3373 for more information.
