ArtsFest ’07 at Georgia Southern University April 14

It’s our 25th anniversary! ArtsFest ’07, the largest spring festival in the Statesboro area, is coming to Sweetheart Circle at Georgia Southern University on Saturday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Come and celebrate this year’s festival and its new and exciting activities!

‘The spring arts festival has been a premier event at Georgia Southern for decades,” says Betty Foy Sanders Art Department Chair Trish Carter. ‘After 25 years, literally generations of families hold fond memories of this event that was once a part of their childhood, and is now part of their children’s experience.”

ArtsFest ’07 is an event that celebrates the visual, musical, literary, and performance arts while honoring creativity and cultural development. This 25-year-old festival is like no other in its range of art and cultural presentations and breadth of regional and national participants. After the success of last year’s festival, ArtsFest ’07 promises more fun for all ages with a mix of brand new events and festival favorites!

ArtsFest ’07 will feature a juried Artist’s Market with distinguished artists from the low country selling their art work and demonstrating their art forms, which include jewelry, photography, basketry, painting, pottery and more. Non-stop musical attractions fill the all-day schedule and include a variety of musical groups, vocal, and dramatic performers. There will be a new look this year with different activities and events that children and adults of all ages will find exciting and entertaining. A rock wall, a 5K morning run, and more than 25 ArtStops where everyone will be able to create art are some of this year’s activities.

ArtsFest ’07 is a free event that is open to the public. The festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., with setup beginning at 8 am.
