The Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro/Destination ARTS! presents a new music and arts festival on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 2 to 6 p.m. at 633 Brewing, located at 118 Walnut Street, Waynesboro, Pa.
“Jammin’ for the ARTS! – Keep the Arts Alive in Waynesboro” is a four-hour festival of non-stop and overlapping music, presented simultaneously on two stages featuring six local bands: Prophets of the Abstract Truth, Bluegrass Hootenanny with Johnny Calamari & Brad Munn, On Tap Duo (Drew Adams & Pat Henson), West Branch 3, Kin Selection, and the Brahman Noodles.
“The featured bands showcase a wide variety of musical styles including bluegrass, Americana, classic rock, country, blues, jazz, and much more,” said Jonathan Ingels, former arts alliance president, who is organizing the music for the event.
There will also be artist demonstrations, raffles, and artwork for sale. Plus, 633 Brewing is preparing a special menu for the occasion.
“Similar to our annual summer fundraiser Jammin’ in the Park, we hope to make this a yearly winter event,” Ingels said. “We look forward to starting this new festival, so that Waynesboro can enjoy more music and arts all year round.”
The event is a fundraiser and all proceeds from admissions benefit the nonprofit Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro, which has been revitalizing and bringing the community together through the arts since 2012.
Admission to Jammin’ for the ARTS! is $25 in advance (on or before February 17). After that, the price will increase to $35. Entry tickets include a free beverage of choice—beer, wine, mixed drink, or non-alcoholic. Seating is limited, so it is advised to purchase tickets early. Tickets are available online at www.artsalliancegw.org.
