Dare County Arts Council will host the 29th Annual Artrageous Kids Art Festival on Saturday, May 12 from 10am-3pm at Dowdy Park in Nags Head. Artrageous is a free, family-friendly, fun event featuring kids art activities, live music, and more entertainment.
Artrageous will also feature local artisans selling their creative goods and a variety of local restaurants selling the perfect lunch items and delicious sweet treats.
The event’s 2018 theme, Find Your Gift, is centered around local nonprofit organizations and businesses that donate their time to teach children about giving back to the community through art and creating handmade gifts for loved ones.
Artrageous was started in 1989. The annual, free community event brings families together to paint, sculpt, dance, sing and be creative.
Artrageous is organized and staffed by volunteer artists, musicians, crafters, dancers, writers, photographers and other creative people who dedicate their time and energy to the event each year.
Proceeds from Artrageous benefit DCAC cultural arts programming and the Artrageous Youth Scholarship Fund, which awards one scholarship to a senior at each Dare County High School.
This project is sponsored by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
