Kids encouraged to have an arty afternoon

September 18, 2013 by  

Roseville is encouraging its youth to paint, draw, and create with the annual Family Arts Festival in downtown. The event is sponsored by the doctors of Kaiser Permanente, who will be participating as well.

Originally held to commemorate the Children’s Gallery’s opening in 2001, the Family Arts Festival has become an awaited event in Roseville. It is held outdoors and takes advantage of Roseville’s usually very pleasant September sun.

Plenty of hands-on activities and crafts will be present for children of all ages. Friends and family are encouraged to join in to either help the kids create – or at least make an even bigger mess. Both the Northern California Children’s Chorus and Roseville Community Band are slated to perform. Healthful snacks and sweets are provided, along with health information beneficial to both the youngsters and adults alike.

Various vendors will have presentations and wares available of interest to both children and adults. Regional businesses can participate and volunteer. Local printing services can help advertise for the Family Arts Festival. More community involvement would be appreciated. Banner printing can reach hundreds with a few well-placed examples leading up to the festival.

The fun begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 28 and runs until 2:00 pm. Vernon Street Town Square at 311 Vernon St., Roseville, California 95678 hosts the festivities. The Family Arts Festival is free to all ages and features free parking. Those looking to find out more information can visit the Blue Line Arts website.
