Saturday, May 11, 2019
I know for sure that the annual Gloucester Public Schools Arts Festival is a favorite yearly event for many, many families. With a perfect combination of both performance and visual art….and with the work and artistic creativity of each school in the district represented….this is truly a special event. There will be both live performances and art displays for all to enjoy at the Cape Ann Museum, Gloucester’s City Hall, and the Sawyer-Free Library. The day’s events will kick off with a Proclamation by Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken at 11:15 at City Hall and will continue until 4:00 pm.
Please also stop by and put your stamp….well, fish….on the collaborative Koi Fish art project that will be taking place between 12-2 in the courtyard of the Cape Ann Museum.
All three venues are within easy walking distance of each other….helping to make this event as easy as it is wonderful!
Please refer to the information and schedule provided in the official press release below…and we hope to see you there!
