The Kennett Alliance for the Arts (KAFTA) is hosting its fourth annual Fall Into Arts Festival from September 6 to 8.
Fall Into Arts is a three-day festival that brings local artists, live music, theatrical performances, and great food to Downtown Kennett, Missouri. All events take place around the Kennett Square. The event is designed for all ages to enjoy with a variety of activities and scheduled entertainment. Fall Into Arts is an exciting cultural event which highlights local talent in the Bootheel of Missouri!
Artists/Crafters and Photographers have the opportunity to show off their work by becoming a Vendor or entering their pieces in either the Adult or Youth Competitions. Along with the Artists’ booths, there will be several Community & Informational booths at this year’s festival. You can learn what is happening in the community and about the art, music, dance, and theater opportunities available in the area.
Kids also have a variety of activities to keep them entertained at Fall Into Arts. There will be art related booths, an activity zone, a jump house, story time, and a balloon artist and street performers. Adults and kids alike will also enjoy the return of the Art Cars; an ordinary vehicle that has added design and art features to make it extraordinary.
As always, Fall Into Arts will have a great lineup of performers throughout the weekend. The festival starts off with a performance of Oedipus Rex by the SEMO Little Theater Group. Musicians, magicians, and dance groups will perform continuously on Saturday and Sunday.
And don’t worry about leaving Fall Into Arts hungry. Area food vendors come to serve up festival favorites. KAFTA will also be partnering with the Kennett Jaycees to hold a Chili Cook-Off as part of the festival.
