Momentum Dance Lab: Yard Art

Category: Dance, movement, Festivals, special events and Kids, family

This event will occur on the weekend of April 24th and 25th. Time slots range from 10am-7pm. The last day to reserve a slot is Wednesday, April 21st at midnight.
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4faaad2fa0fece9-yard1

Where: In order to participate, performance locations must be within Knox County. If you live more than 30 minutes away from Downtown Knoxville please note that when you reserve your time slot, so we can do our best to accommodate all our hosts.

Cost: This is a fundraiser and payment will be accepted upon arrival. Payment options include Venmo, Paypal, Credit/Debit Card, and Exact Cash. All performances will include four pieces and a talk back. Cost for the performance is $50. Be aware that as this is a prominent fundraiser for us, we will ask for donations from audience members. The performance fee is set, but anything above that is optional. Email momentumdancelab@gmail.com with any questions.

Momentum Dance Lab is continuing fundraising efforts with a second installment of YARD ART! Imagine a few highly trained beautiful dancers performing in your own back (or front!) yard for you and your family or a small group of friends. We’re ready to come to bring to you a few pieces, performed by some of our most highly skilled dancers, and you don’t even have to get dressed for the theater! Our dancers will arrive, perform, and leave during your chosen half hour time slot. They’ll be able to stay about an extra five minutes after the performance to answer questions about dance or MDL in particular, and for you to browse and order MDL logo’d merchandise. The dancers will need to travel to their next drop in performance site in a timely manner, so they sadly will have to stick to their schedule. This is guaranteed to be great fun!

Dogwood Arts: Dogwood Arts Festival

Category: Culinary arts, food, Exhibitions, visual art, Festivals, special events, Fine Crafts, Free event, Kids, family and Music

World's Fair Park, 525 Henley St, Knoxville

FRIDAY, APRIL 23: 10AM-7PM*
*10AM-12PM reserved for the elderly and immunocompromised​

SATURDAY, APRIL 24: 10AM-7PM

SUNDAY, APRIL 25: 10AM-5PM

We've been working closely with the City of Knoxville and following Knox County Health Department guidelines to bring this celebrated springtime event back to downtown while prioritizing the health and safety of everyone involved.

We're moving the festival to the beautifully redesigned Performance Lawn at World’s Fair Park and showcasing 75 art vendors working in mixed media, pottery, painting, photography, glass, jewelry, sculpture, and more. The Dogwood Arts Festival provides an important opportunity for professional artists to sell their work––an opportunity that was sorely missed last year due to the pandemic.

The event will also feature live music from local favorites on two small stages, take-home art activities for kids, and a concession area with food vendors, beer, wine, and cocktails provided by Sugarlands Distilling Company.

Greater in size than two football fields, the Performance Lawn at World’s Fair Park provides ample space for attendees and vendors to safely social distance. There is a strict capacity limit and guests will be required to reserve a free ticket online prior to the event. Tickets are available in two-hour increments and there will be a designated period on Friday morning for elderly and immunocompromised attendees. Reserve your ticket at the link below!

Masks are required for all patrons over the age of 12 and must remain on unless guests are seated in the concession area. Staff, volunteers, and artists will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms each day before entering the event. https://www.dogwoodarts.com/dogwoodartsfestival

In order to maintain social distancing, all groups of attendees will be spaced six feet apart from other groups in attendance. Tickets cost $10 and will go on sale April 1 at www.beardentheatre.com.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows the misadventures of four young lovers, a group of aspiring actors, and a team of mischievous fairies as they all enter the woods outside Athens on a summer night. The ensuing hilarity and chaos create an evening filled with love and laughter.
