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.
