    What to Expect

    The festival happens all in one day and is split into two events: the Strings & Stories afternoon session features a handful of artists who perform a few songs and share the stories behind them, while the evening event features full sets by some of those same artists along with a few new performers. Attend the for afternoon, evening or both (with an all-day pass).

    Supporting the Arts

    This is a chance to see some amazing artists in the spacious, yet intimate-feeling Macky Auditorium — all while benefitting the Future Arts Foundation. They supply dozens of schools each year with the musical instruments and art supplies they cannot afford to purchase themselves.
