That’s Entertainment!

Performances are a highlight of the Festival. You can see both touring and local performers – everything from jazz to bluegrass, folk to rock, concert bands to choral groups, not to mention musical theatre, dance, and comedy.

We present free performances on three outdoor stages – the Allen Street Stage, the Festival Shell, and the Sidney Friedman Park Stage – in addition to smaller acts on outdoor plazas. Our Festival button provides admittance to select indoor performances at four venues on campus and downtown.

We’re sure you’ll find a performance you’ll enjoy at the Arts Festival!
