A unique collaboration brought to you by ArtsGreensboro
Come to Greensboro, North Carolina for 17 DAYS Arts & Culture Festival, September 20 through October 6, 2013, and experience more than 100 events across the city in dozens of some of the south’s most charming and unique venues. From musical classics to Americana roots-rock, award-winning theatre and dance to storytelling, the visual arts, galleries and everything in between. 17 DAYS is a celebration of all things beautiful and exciting.
In just two years, ArtsGreensboro’s 17 DAYS Arts & Culture Festival has firmly established itself as a major arts destination event for North Carolina. What’s unique about 17 DAYS is the collaborative nature of the Festival’s vision: more than 70 arts & entertainment presenters, arts producers, venues and other organizations work together towards 100+ events within the Festival’s two-and-a-half week calendar. This year’s festival runs from September 20 through October 6, and is hosted by ArtsGreensboro.
Preliminary plans for 2013 will feature top-flight entertainers and arts events, ranging from Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight, concerts from Joan Osborne and Kathy Mattea, exhibits from Green Hill and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, popular cellist Matt Haimovitz in Beyond Bach, to Symphony concerts, dance, a Triad Stage production of the thriller Wait Until Dark, mural projects, pop-up events, local vintners & micro brews, cooking classes, street festivals, artist studio tours, jazz and blues events indoors and out, in venues across the city – even a special weekend devoted to the art of chocolate.
Last fall’s 2012 Festival schedule attracted 75,000, which included Grammy winning performers like Branford Marsalis and Mamadou Diabate, multiple theatre productions, exhibits, dance, children’s programming, poetry, special events, films – well, you get the picture.
