LINK FEST – Food, Arts, and Music
June 22 - June 23
Produced by Link Centre, LinkFest is a new annual two-day festival on June 22-23, 2018. LinkFest will feature an array of musical events, multidisciplinary arts showcases and workshops, community entrepreneurs, and celebrations of delicious cuisine. Held throughout the Link Centre campus, LinkFest will offer a full weekend of arts events and immersion, a unique community opportunity to get to know our many partners and the social/arts services they offer, and an interactive introduction to our campus and its multiple event and work spaces. LinkFest will present activities and showcases for all ages, reflecting the diverse demographics of Tupelo and surrounding areas.
LinkFest will present:
• Live Music Shows: Friday, June 22nd presents a fun-filled evening of delicious New Orleans cuisine and live music with an open dance floor! Saturday, June 23rd, LinkFest offers its finale music event in the Concert Hall with two back-to-back performances: from the famous Big Easy family of musicians, Ms. Charmaine Neville, and Mississippi’s own Breaking Grass.
• Interactive Workshops (FREE & Open to the Public): Facilitated by arts/crafts/business professionals, sessions will offer insight on the creation and business of different art and craft forms (acting, music, spoken word, crafts). Click here for details.
• Live Cooking Demonstrations: In our Reception Hall, LinkFest presents the opportunity to learn how to prepare special cuisines and will promote healthy meal preparation.
As a yearly fundraising tool, LinkFest will support Link Centre’s mission to identify and attract partners to offer transformative arts, education, and social service experiences that inspire and improve the health and well being of the community. To present our inaugural Festival, we are seeking vital community partnerships and sponsorship to support areas such as our music and arts showcases, culinary presentations, and workshops.
