Columbia celebrates an artful entry into 2014

December 10, 2013 by  

The Columbia Eve Fest is taking place this New Year’s Eve in downtown Columbia, offering a celebration of the arts and a replacement for First Night.

The festivities will start off with a 5K Run/Walk. The main events will take place on 9th Avenue between Elm and Locust, but other activities will take place at the Missouri Theatre and the Columbia Art League.

Some of the activities taking place during the evening include art exhibits and sales, a creation station for kids, the showing of silent films, performances by student buskers, and a demonstration by the Astonomy Club. Visitors can also take part in acoustic jam sessions or visit the Food Truck Cafe. Organizers are still seeking volunteers to help with the festival in order for it to run smoothly.

In order to make sure plenty of people from Columbia know about this show, it is likely that it will be widely advertised. When an event such as this needs to be marketed local printing companies are often called upon to help by providing such materials as flyers. Specimens can then be sent out by mail, inserted in local newspapers, or handed out on street corners.

Columbia Eve Fest will take place on December 31 beginning at 4:00 pm. Passes go on sale on December 16 and are $6 each or $8 at the gate, while children aged 6 and under are admitted free. Call 573-673-8477 to learn more about the evening’s events.
