EASTON, Conn. -- The inaugural Rebirth Arts Festival will feature all Connecticut-based visual artists, sculptors, film makers, musicians, culinarians and breweries in a big free event this Friday and Saturday.
The grassroots, entirely community-funded nonprofit initiative is dedicated to uplifting Connecticut through film, music, and art.
The event will be held on an 18-acre hilltop residence the festival will feature music from, among others, Jen Durkin and The Business, McLovins and Funky Dawgz Brass Band. Festival-goers can view installations throughout the Art Forest, enjoy Connecticut eats from local food trucks and draughts from Two Roads Brewing Co.
As night falls Connecticut films will be shown on an immense screen overlooking the valley.
Three fundraisers were held in support of the festival, which also received grants from the Connecticut Public Art Community, the Connecticut State Office of the Arts, Fairfield County’s Community Foundation and Spread Music Now.
It is also partnered with the nonprofit education program Horizons at Greens Farms Academy, where our contributing artists are teaching free classes in music and ceramics this summer.
Entry to this event is free, however festival-goers are required to register at this link .
