ECK 1st Annual Community Art Festival
Elkton Community Kitchen is happy to announce their First (and hopefully annual) Community Art Festival on October 22, 2022 from 10am-6pm! Thank you for your interest in becoming a juried artist for the 1st Annual Community Art Festival to benefit Elkton Community Kitchen, a non-profit hot lunch program in Elkton, Maryland. Now in their 21st year, they are collaborating with the Cecil County Arts Council to host a fundraising event at Elkton Presbyterian Church to promote their organization, encourage volunteers, and support their hot lunch program into the future.
Please spread the word and share this event with your artist friends. They are also looking for artists. They have spaces for approximately 30 of the area’s BEST and MOST TALENTED artists!
They ask for a “donation” of whatever you can give to support their mission to feed our hungry neighbors. This is a great way to kick off your Christmas holiday shopping. There will be Food Trucks, Raffles, Artwork, information about their program, and plenty of free parking with easy access to their Festival are a plus.
