3/7/2013 - Fun & Fundraising Opportunity at Smoky Hill River Festival 2013
   
FUN & FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY
At Smoky Hill River Festival 2013

The 37th Smoky Hill River Festival is fast approaching! For Festival 2013, the Children's Area will be transformed into "Artyopolis," a thriving metropolis of art, crafts, games and more, designed especially as a kid-sized “lots to do” town.
Non-profit and community groups are invited to apply to provide a fun, exciting and active game for kids to enjoy at the Festival. The new Game Street will now feature an exciting “pay to play” area in a colorful, vibrant store-front setting that resembles a traditional downtown Main Street, with a splash of color and whimsy.

Game Street will provide space and a canopy for your club to set up the game. Each time the game is played, your organization profits! The location of the games also has changed and will be in a high-traffic section of Artyopolis.
If you are interested in taking part in this fundraising opportunity, but can’t think of a game, call 785-309-5770 or e-mail sahc@salina.org, as Festival staff has many ideas and options to offer.

For needed accommodations, please call Kathy Burlew at Salina Arts & Humanities at 785-309-5770 between 8:00 a.m. - Noon and 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Every effort will be made to accommodate known disabilities. For material or speech access, please call at least five working days prior to the event.

Salina Arts & Humanities, a department of the City of Salina, has served a unique role in arts advocacy and support since 1966. The Smoky Hill River Festival, Horizons Grants Program, Smoky Hill Museum, Arts Infusion Program in schools, Cultural Connections, and Art a la Carte concert series are among the programs of Salina Arts & Humanities, located at 211 W. Iron Avenue in Salina.
