Please join us for the 53rd annual Michigan Youth Arts Festival on May 7-9, 2015 at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo!
The Michigan Youth Arts Festival is the culmination of a nine-month search for the finest artistic talent in Michigan high schools. More than 250,000 students across the state participate in the selection process that results in 1,000 being invited to participate in the annual three-day arts spectacular.
At the Michigan Youth Arts Festival, exceptional student artists participate in advanced master classes, workshops, live performances, and exhibits that are tailored to their individual artistic discipline. Not only is it an experience to enrich their own artistic craft, but also an opportunity to celebrate their fellow peers. From the concert recitals, to the visual art exhibit, to the film festival and theatrical performances, The Michigan Youth Arts Festival is a memorable event that students will fondly remember throughout their artistic careers.
Teachers who would like to take their students on a field trip to the Michigan Youth Arts Festival may use our Arts & Culture Trek “Bus Grant” to help cover the transportation costs. Admission to the Festival is free and open to the public.
