APFTA 4-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY AND CONCERT [featuring the Heavyweight Brass Band]

Come celebrate four years of awesomness with us! Yes, A Place for the Arts is turning 4! And you're invited! Let the party begin. Here are the details:

  1. Party starts at 3pm with live music, a collaborative art project than anyone can join, as well as a silent auction and 50/50 draw. This is licensed event (yay!) which means a) yes, you can drink responsibly, and b) we shelled out some dough to get the licence, so please be generous when buying raffle tickets to help us recoup the costs :)

  2. Potluck dinner starts at 5pm - we are omnivore, vegetarian and vegan friendly, so bring what you love, but please let us know if it contains animal products so we can label is accordingly. It's sure to be a delicious meal. If you've been to any previous APFTA potlucks, you know there are some amazing and ecclectic chefs in our community! Yummmm...

  3. The Heavyweights Brass Band will perform at 7pm. If you're not already familiar with them, check them out here! They are amazing! Tickets are $10, and can be purchased at the door, or in advance at APFTA, or online by emailing placeforthearts@gmail.com
