The festival will feature a large outdoor stage showcasing a variety of performances throughout the day ranging from jazz to R&B vocals, Orchestra and Wind Symphony ensembles, to Afro-Cuban dance and classical and theatrical realism.

Performed by the students, alumni and faculty of the music, theater and dance department, MDC Kendall campus currently boasts the largest music program of all MDC campuses. Featuring a distinguished faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and ample performance opportunities, the department guides and develops the artistic, intellectual, and professional growth of its students.

Interactive activities for children of all ages will take place to engage them in the performing arts process. They can take part in dance workshops, theatrical face painting, and even a “instrumental petting zoo,” where kids have an opportunity to play with a variety of instruments.

Visitors can also enjoy an array of local food trucks surrounding the performance areas as well as vendor booths offering information and resources in the performing arts disciplines.
