2013 North Charleston Arts Festival
The 2013 North Charleston Arts Festival is right around the corner and they are currently seeking volunteers to help make the event a success! This years event will be held from May 3 – May 11, 2013 and looks to be bigger and better than previous years! You can expect a wide array of performances, art, music, and dance that will capture the vibrancy of our neighborhood.
The North Charleston Arts Festival just recently announced the winner of their design competition who will have the honor of having their artwork displayed on all promotional t-shirts, flyers and posters. The winner of the statewide competition was Linda Elksnin, who will have her artwork (pictured above) displayed all over town.
