Festival of arts planned at Fairlane
POTTSVILLE — The first Festival of the Arts will be held at Fairlane Village mall, Route 61, on May 5.
In a release, Sandra Coyle, administrative director of the Schuylkill County Council for the Arts, 1440 Mahantongo St., said the festival will be an “expo-type” event with “various performances during the day, a free youth theater workshop and a youth vocal competition.”
Organizers hope it will become an annual event.
The festival will be a “great time” for the “many organizations in the area” to “showcase their talents,” Coyle said, adding, “There is also a growing interest in the performing arts in the area and we want to help give information on the opportunities in our area.”
The Schuylkill Theater Association is the event host and organizers are “trying to get the word out on this first-of-akind performing arts event,” Coyle said.
