Council Adopts New Name; Sets 2014 Festival Date
On July 16, 2013, the Montevallo Arts Council voted to rebrand its signature event in Orr Park. Montevallo's largest annual arts event will now be known as the Montevallo Arts Festival! For seven years, the Council has hosted an event that features visual arts, music, dance, and the written and spoken word. We hope that our new name will be a better match for an event that embraces art of all forms.
The Eighth Annual Montevallo Arts Festival will take place Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The Council has more exciting news about the show to share in the coming months here on our website and on our Facebook Page.
