Rancho Cucamonga to host community arts festival

The Rancho Cucamonga Community and Arts Foundation will host the city’s first Community Arts Festival on Saturday, April 30 at the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center, 12505 Cultural Center Drive. The event is free to the public and will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The festival will feature not only local talent, including both youth and adult artists, but will also represent all types of visual and performing arts through live performances, a visual art exhibit, and interactive activities for families and children to enjoy.

“Come celebrate the arts and all that our community has to offer at this free, fun, engaging and interactive community event,” the event’s description read online. “Try a visual arts activity to inspire your inner artist. Discover the many multi-cultural arts groups in our region. Learn where local residents can sign up for programs and activities to develop their talents and skills.”

The foundation invites organizations to participate at no cost by hosting an information booth, performing on the community stage, providing an arts demonstration or hands-on activity, or exhibiting artwork, a news release said. All local arts organizations, school-based arts programs, and arts-focused businesses are encouraged to come together to celebrate California Arts, Culture and Creativity Month, an annual event to raise visibility and awareness about the value of the arts in our community.

More information is coming soon, but to inquire about booth space or volunteer opportunities, email jason.james@rccaaf.org. To learn more about the inaugural event and to submit a participation interest form, go to https://rccaaf.org/community-arts-festival.
