With Arts Fest just a few weeks away, CNY Arts Center is looking for local talent to compete for prizes June 9, at Fulton’s War Memorial Community Center.
Prizes will be awarded in three categories according to age, under 12, 12-20 and 20 and older.
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, vocals, 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 expect this festival to grow each year and become a highlight of the summer. Being in the Community Center at the War Memorial gives us ample space for a stage, featured entertainers and a powerful talent competition along with art and food vendors – 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 noon with prizes awarded by 12:30 p.m.
Performers are invited to register online at www.CNYArtsCenter.com or call 15-598-8812 for more information.
