    Spartanburg Soaring! International Kite Festival

    Where
    Barnet Park, Spartanburg [ Map ]
    Description
    Chapman Cultural Center has set the date for its fourth annual Spartanburg Soaring! International Kite Festival for Saturday, April 22, 2017, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. This free and family-friendly festival has quickly become a much-anticipated event for people of all ages from all over the world. Hundreds of kites fill the sky above Barnet Park in downtown Spartanburg, complemented by live music, food, and children's activities. During the course of the day, individuals and kite club members float kites of every imaginable shape and size to the sky, from small kites to whale-size kites made from the latest technology and advanced materials. It is a colorful and creative experience.

    The Spartanburg community has embraced the kite as a symbol of its creative, progressive, and playful spirit. Last year, the event attracted more than 3,000 participants from as far away as Europe.

    "Every year we grow the Festival in terms of creativity and attendance," Jennifer Evins, President and CEO of Chapman Cultural Center, said. "It is part of our mission to increase community vibrancy and civic engagement. It is a beautiful showcase of what it means to live in Spartanburg. It is a symbol of our progressive mindset, our creativity, our curiosity, and our playful nature."

    Chapman Cultural Center is now accepting the participation of kite clubs, food vendors, artists, and musicians. For more information about this event, please call (864) 542-ARTS or visit our Facebook Event Page https://www.facebook.com/ChapmanCulturalCenter.

    Established in 1989, the ST. LAWRENCE STRING QUARTET earned international recognition within a few years, winning both the Banff Quartet Competition and the Young Concert Artists audition in 1992. The group has since developed an undisputed reputation as a truly world class chamber ensemble. Called "witty, buoyant, and wickedly attentive (The Gazette, Montreal), with a "peerless" sense of ensemble (Financial Times, London), the quartet is celebrated for its "smoldering intensity" (Washington Post), and "flexibility, dramatic fire and… hint of rock ‘n' roll energy" (LA Times). SLSQ performs internationally and has served as Ensemble in Residence at Stanford University since 1998.
