The Art Centre Theatre will partner with the Plano Arts Coalition and the Historic Downtown Plano Association to present Plano Artfest. The festival is a free community event for families and art lovers of all types. Built around artistic inclusiveness, creative curiosities, and cultural connection, Plano Artfest brings together the best creative talent North Texas has to offer ranging from artisans, craftsman to street buskers.
The event’s inaugural year will incorporate a week of community art programming that will include gallery exhibitions, theatrical performances, art panel discussions, film screenings, and concerts. The festival day will include an artist village of craftsmen and makers, performances from local arts groups, the favorite Chalk-It-Up experience, kids crafts, a graffiti art exhibit, and the Apprentice Studio, a hands-on learning experience for all ages taught by local professional artists.
Food trucks will be on site and beer and wine available for purchase in McCall Plaza next to Artist Village. Festival attendees can also experience any of the award-winning restaurants in the Historic Downtown Arts District.
