The University of North Carolina School of the Arts will host a 50th Anniversary Community Festival on Saturday, Sept. 20.


Community Festival 2014 – the first in many years – will be a way of saying “thank-you” to the residents of Winston-Salem, the Piedmont Triad, and all North Carolinians for half a century of support.



Community Festival will take place on the campus at 1533 South Main St. from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will include remarks from the new chancellor, Lindsay Bierman.



Guests may choose from among family-friendly activities such as performances and presentations by each of the five arts schools, presentations and displays about the school’s revitalized international programs, face painting, a balloon artist, caricature drawings, a musical petting zoo, and circus skills exhibitions.


Refreshments will be available for sale by local food truck vendors, and a birthday cake will be offered free of charge.


Those who wish to drive to Community Festival should plan to park at the Gateway YWCA. Shuttles will be provided to campus.


UNCSA will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary throughout the year, with events such as a speaker’s series, an exhibit and performances at the New Winston Museum, and a featured performance of Guys and Dolls and gala in April 2015. Details to come.


Come celebrate with us!
