APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR THE SAN PEDRO ♥ FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS DANCE + OTHER AREAS – SEPT 17-18, 2016
The San Pedro ♥ Festival of the Arts is a free family event featuring dance, music & Visual Arts/Crafts Booths in the Ports O’Call Village on the waterfront. This will be its 10th year. The festival was again awarded a Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA, Festival Grant, and for the first time a 2016-17 Community Investment Grant from the Port of LA. Several summer/ fall free previews lead to the main event on Sept 17-18, 2016.
Last year the Dance component included 14 professional and 7 pre-professional companies from all over the Southland. You can see more about past festivals at www.triartSP.com. There is an interest in all dance forms performed by professional companies and Honorariums for all professional companies selected.
Outdoor Marley covered stage 32 x 28 ft. Each set will be 10-25 minutes. The programs open with 2-3 pre-professional groups each day, so we’d like to hear from schools also. The turn out on each day was several thousand over the days events. We anticipate good coverage for the event, both before and after. Early deadline is through 6/30, late deadline 7/15.
