ARTS Wake Forest (AWF) will host Arti Gras, a Mardi Gras party open to the community on Saturday, March 2, 2019, 6 p.m., in downtown Wake Forest at the Renaissance Centre, 405 South Brooks Street.
Arti Gras--an evening of Cajun food, dancing to zydeco, swing and jazz music, an art-themed silent auction, cash bar, 50/50 raffle and crowning of a King cupcake winner—is guaranteed to be a good time for all those who attend. Festive attire and masks are encouraged.
Tickets are $35 each and may be purchased online at www.ARTSwakeforest.org or at Page 158 Books, 415 South Brooks Street, Unit B, in Wake Forest.
AWF is hosting Arti Gras as a fundraiser to benefit cultural events and educational programs in the greater Wake Forest community. The non-profit with a mission to support and enhance a strong, vibrant community through arts and cultural activities was established in 1990 by a group of dedicated volunteers.
The 29-year-old organization hosted its first Mardi Gras party as a fundraiser in the early 1990s.
Today, AWF is best known for its Six Sundays in Spring free outdoor concert series, the Wake Forest Dance Festival and the annual Holiday Artisans Market. It also brings concerts, art exhibits and other events to the Wake Forest community.
