Art in the Burg

Third Saturday in May & September

In light of the National Emergency and ongoing events surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Spring Art in the Burg has been postponed until the Fall.  We look forward to seeing everyone at that time!

2020 - Spring Art in the Burg returns to Celebrate the Arts! We plan to pack the town with art, music and children's activities from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m!  
For the first time, local artists will participate in Art CAN Help by creating sculptures from unopened cans of food.  Vote for your favorite sculpture by dropping a dollar in their can.  All proceeds from Art CAN Help will benefit the Seven Loaves Foodbank.
