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, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new library.
Visitors 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, 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.
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.
Watch this page for details, and come celebrate with us!
