The complete schedule is listed below and details about these events can be found at www.alltogetherarts.com.

Before the May 4 Kick-Off festivities commence, there will be a "circle talk" for networking among creative people in and around Mercer County. The intent is to allow new connections to be made, spur collaboration and share ideas.
