Summer Solstice Artspot: First Annual Festival!
Over the Bridge Arts presents a free, family-friendly arts festival celebrating the summer solstice and the creative arts at Sylvan 30!
SUMMER SOLSTICE ARTSPOT - JUNE 24, 9 AM - 9 PM @ SYLVAN THIRTY
In the spirit of street festivals everywhere, audiences at Summer Solstice Artspot will encounter performers in unexpected places. Instead of performing on stages, TVs or computer screens, we will bring the artists in direct contact with the audience. It is family-friendly and will be free to attend. We want everyone in the community to have a chance to experience a wide variety of professional artists in music, dance, theater, poetry, and more, with an emphasis on new works by emerging artists.
Over the Bridge Arts is a new nonprofit founded by three performing artists who are residents of Oak Cliff. Our goal is to support the performing and visual arts of our area through performance and educational opportunities, and to build an audience for local artists.

Risks and challenges
We are dedicated to making this festival happen no matter what. We've had an overwhelming response from the community at Sylvan 30 thus far and we anticipate a fun-filled day. If we don't reach our goal, funding that was to go towards the performers will have to be cut - potentially causing the festival to lose out on some great art - so let's spread the word and reach our goal! We can do it!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
