The Art of Food & Beverage allows patrons to experience the craftsmanship and artistry of local beverage and food establishments and may cause you to wonder if they just might have made their products with a brush and palette. The Art of Food & Beverage is in its Junior year and will be bringing back local favorites while adding new additions in 2019.
At just over 30,000 people, Danville is considered only a mid-size community, but that hasn't prevented it from exploding with talented performing arts groups. The decision was made in 2017 to provide a dedicated space at Arts in the Park to showcase these wonderful groups. We are bringing back a new and improved Theatre Row in 2019 so you will be able to enjoy offerings from hometown favorites like DLO Musical Theatre and the Red Mask Players, to newcomers like the groundbreaking Dark Horse Theatre Company.
Widely popular in previous years, Pop-Up Artists will be returning in 2019! When the decision was made to move fine arts to the Artist Promenade in 2015, it moved our artists further away from the stage. So, what did we do? We brought the stage to them! Pop-Up Artists will now have two stages, a stage for acoustic acts at the north end of the Artist Promenade and a stage for amplified acts at the south end. This will allow our artists and patrons to see even more talent over the course of the event!
