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 (21 and over only) to give away! The festival is scheduled for THIS SATURDAY (Sept. 8, 2018) from 4-9 p.m., so this is a quick turnaround giveaway! Sign up fast for a chance to win (see below for how).
AMP Fest is Arkansas’ premier 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 3rd annual event will feature Master Brewer Fergal Murray as well as live music from Dazz & Brie, Goose and The Mixtapes! A self-proclaimed “girl gang,” Dazz & Brie’s rock and soul style have entertained audiences at Afropunk’s Battle of the Bands in Brooklyn, SXSW and on stages in their home base in Little Rock. Fayetteville-based Goose draws influence from Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson and Coldplay with rich lyrics and upbeat tempos. The Mixtapes are a high-energy party loaded with a huge range of music spanning the ‘90s.
Plus you’ll find fun tech activations and games and beer samples from over 30 breweries. All included in the ticket price. (Click here to get tickets.)

HOW AMP FEST HELPS LOCAL KIDS (even though it’s for adults):
Last year, AMP Fest raised approximately $83,000 that was used to improve classroom learning through arts integration and inspire more than 40,000 students, teachers and families in the region by connecting them to free or low cost performing and visual arts programs through Walton Arts Center.
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.
