East Carolina University will present The Thirteenth Annual Youth Arts Festival on Saturday, March 25th 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This event will be held on the "mall" area in the center of campus. In case of rain, the festival will be held in the Leo W. Jenkins Fine Arts Building on Fifth Street.

The festival will bring over 150 visual and performing artists to campus who will share their creative talents with the children of our community. Varied talented musical, dance and theatrical groups will also be featured at the festival. Children will have the opportunity to visit with artists demonstrating activities such as wheel thrown ceramics, traditional watercolor painting, weaving, blacksmithing, paper-making, printmaking, sculpture, portraiture and a myriad of other visual art media. Featured visual artists will come from surrounding states, North Carolina, Greenville, and from the School of Art and Design at East Carolina University.

Children will also have the opportunity to create their own artwork with the help of professional artists and art students. There will be lots of other fun and exciting interactive activities for children of all ages during the day. March 25th will be a day full of "fun and adventure." All children, families and individuals interested in the arts are welcome.

We will also have exciting stage acts all day!
