Art Walk will raffle $1,200 gift basket at Artsfest May 2-3

Because of the cancellation of ArtsFiesta – the Friday night kickoff of Artsfest – there seems to be some confusion about whether Art Walk will occur, as evidenced by a recent spate of calls to our office and our individual Art Walk venues.

Art Walk will absolutely go on as scheduled, 6-10 p.m.! Like Artsfest, we are a rain-or-shine event. We encourage visitors to dress appropriately, with raincoats, umbrellas and warm clothing, and join us for a fun evening of community and creativity.

Also, Art Walk will have a booth at Artsfest this weekend, and we will be selling $2 raffle tickets for our fabulous gift basket featuring more than $1,200 worth of gift certificates, art and craft items, and other merchandise. All proceeds will go to the Arts in Action initiative, providing funds for arts education and basic needs of Springfield schoolchildren.

The drawing for the raffle will take place during the regular meeting of the First Friday Art Walk Board of Directors, which will be held at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 6, at The Creamery Arts Center.
