Encounter the Arts logo
Encounter the Arts is a free annual event that celebrates our vibrant arts community through a full day of family-friendly workshops and performances. At the event, local artists lead a variety of classes and demonstrations for people of all ages. Encounter the Arts is an open house-style event, so everyone in the community can join us for the whole day or come and go as they please! 

We recently celebrated our first Encounter the Arts in the fall of 2022. Thank you to everyone who attended and our guest artists for making the day one to remember! We look forward to bringing the event back next October.
