Giveaway: We’ve got 2 free tickets to AMP Fest on Oct. 14

Date night or Girls’ Night Out, anyone? AMP Fest is the perfect answer!

This is a fun event and we’ve got 2 FREE tickets (adults only) to give away! The festival is scheduled for Oct. 14th event from 4-9 p.m.

AMP Fest, now in its second year, is a beer, music and tech festival. Organized by Walton Arts Center’s Corporate Leadership Council, this event is designed to raise awareness and to benefit Arts Education programming at Walton Arts Center.

The one-day festival includes cutting-edge games, technology activations and interactive experiences as well as live music on three stages and unlimited free samples of more than 60 local, regional and craft beers from more than 20 selected breweries. Plus, there will be great food available to purchase.

HOW AMP FEST HELPS LOCAL KIDS (even though it’s for adults): Last year, attendees helped raise over $83,000 towards Arts Education programming and the goal this year is $100,000.

The Masquerade Ball in February and AMP Fest in October are two big annual fundraising events that directly benefit arts education initiatives. With the help of the CLC and funds raised from these two events, Walton Arts Center is able to create a space for all students to have access to the same opportunities—a chance to see the beautiful things in life and see themselves and the world differently through the arts.

Whether a field trip to the arts center, an artist-led workshop in their classroom, or training teachers in how to integrate arts in the classroom, students benefit from having the arts as part of their school experience.

“Art taps into what makes us human… through the arts we can help a literacy teacher learn to use drama in a way that helps kids become better readers. Or we can teach a science teacher how to use movement and dance to help kids gain a better understanding of science concepts like water cycles,” said Laura Goodwin of WAC.

  1. My husband is going to PA for three weeks (back on the 13th) for the Army. It sure would be nice to have a date night when he gets back to unwind and enjoy each other after the time away. Crossing fingers….

  2. I am a full time homeschool mom to our four kids so I *need* some adult time & conversation! 🙂 this would be so fun to win!!!

  3. My husband has been working overtime as well as remodeling a bathroom in our home. I would love to be able to take him and let him relax and try some new brews at the same time!

  4. Husband and I have and 18 yr old, a 12 yr old, and a new 8 month old that doesn’t think sleep is a necessity. 🙂 we haven’t gone out since well before she was born. This would be much appreciated.

  5. The event sounds amazing and for a great cause! Pick me! It’s always important to make time for couple time:)

  6. My fiancé and I have not had a date night just to our selves in almost a full year. Our amazing son is always by our side. With our busy schedules we didn’t have time for our 1 year anniversary. We need a date night that’s special just to our selves.

  7. simply said, I just need to be with my husband in an adult environment talking about something other than bath time, potty training and what’s for dinner. We would love a night out . Thanks

  8. A night out after the year we have had would be a welcome respite. Two surgeries (including spinal cord surgery) and a full year out of work, my husband (and I) needs some ‘fun time.’

  9. We are foster parents and rarely have any time alone together. We would LOVE this night out!!

  10. I’m trying being a stay-at-home mom this year (former teacher) and the hubs works all the time! Would be nice to have an excuse to get out with him! 😍🎉🎉

  11. I need an adult only night because I have two teenage twin daughters….. enough said

  12. We need a break! On a budget and three teenagers to feed… a night of carelessness will be amazing!!

  13. My daughter is a budding artist, check her out on Instagram Caroline_the_artist_ Glad you are supporting the Arts!!

  14. 7 children and 7 grandchildren….I’m about ready for a night out!!

  15. Mother of 1 meets Father of 3. Both have full custody of their kids. Yeah… This sounds good to me. Hahaha

  16. We moved here in July from Wyoming, Neither one of us really know anyone here. The move has made it hard to pay a babysitter and go out on a date, so we haven’t. The last time mom and dad had a date night was the end of May. We could really use some time away from the baby to just be adults.

  17. My husband and I are raising our 11 year old granddaughter and an adult day away would be a wonderful change for us. Thank you

  18. I would love an adult night out. I work full time and have a baby girl who I love to be with as much as I can so I don’t get much adult time. There are times I would like a few hours of adult time but I don’t have the money to just let loose and not worry about spending money.
