Flint Hills Family Festival, presented by the Ordway, coming to Anoka Middle School for the Arts for free pop-up event

Family Festival logo(04/14/2023) A partnership with one of the leading U.S. performing art centers will bring a free art experience to Anoka Middle School for the Arts (AMSA) April 27. The Flint Hills Family Festival is presented by the Ordway.

This community pop-up event is open to the public and runs from 6:30-8 p.m. at the AMSA Fred Moore Campus Auditorium.

The first hour features interactive art making with visual artist Jimmy Longoria. Working in small groups, students will cut, map out and stick down colorful 3M sticker sheets in various colors, finishes and opacities to create a collage of flowers in vases.

The event wraps up at 7:30 p.m. with a performance by Ensō Daiko, a loud, energetic performance group that combines music, dance, culture and pure athleticism. View a flyer for the event.

For more than 20 years, the Flint Hills Family Festival has brought communities together through the power of the arts, welcoming over a million students, teachers, and families since its conception in 2001. School week is May 30-June 2 and the Family Festival is June 2-3.
