3/7/2013 - Fun & Fundraising Opportunity at Smoky Hill River Festival 2013
At Smoky Hill River Festival 2013

The 37th Smoky Hill River Festival is fast approaching! For Festival 2013, the Children's Area will be transformed into "Artyopolis," a thriving metropolis of art, crafts, games and more, designed especially as a kid-sized “lots to do” town.
Non-profit and community groups are invited to apply to provide a fun, exciting and active game for kids to enjoy at the Festival. The new Game Street will now feature an exciting “pay to play” area in a colorful, vibrant store-front setting that resembles a traditional downtown Main Street, with a splash of color and whimsy.

Game Street will provide space and a canopy for your club to set up the game. Each time the game is played, your organization profits! The location of the games also has changed and will be in a high-traffic section of Artyopolis.
If you are interested in taking part in this fundraising opportunity, but can’t think of a game, call 785-309-5770 or e-mail, as Festival staff has many ideas and options to offer.

For needed accommodations, please call Kathy Burlew at Salina Arts & Humanities at 785-309-5770 between 8:00 a.m. - Noon and 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Every effort will be made to accommodate known disabilities. For material or speech access, please call at least five working days prior to the event.

Salina Arts & Humanities, a department of the City of Salina, has served a unique role in arts advocacy and support since 1966. The Smoky Hill River Festival, Horizons Grants Program, Smoky Hill Museum, Arts Infusion Program in schools, Cultural Connections, and Art a la Carte concert series are among the programs of Salina Arts & Humanities, located at 211 W. Iron Avenue in Salina.
