A new Christian arts festival is coming to Essex County.
Arise Christian Arts Theatre is a local faith-based, family-friendly performance space in Ruscom and will host its first-ever Arise Christian Arts Festival later this month.
The festival at 2527 Cty. Rd. 46 will include local praise and worship groups, live musical performances on two stages, art exhibits and a children’s corner.
There will be two sessions at the July 23 festival: 2 to 5 p.m. and 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., with a full festival line-up due to be announced closer to the event date.
“Attendees can expect a joyous and uplifting day of praise and worship groups, music, poetry, storytelling, art and family fun in the rustic farm setting home of Arise Christian Theatre,” organizers said in a press release. For kids, the festival will include face-painting and outdoor games.
Admission is pay-what-you-can and a shuttle bus will be available. Attendees are asked to register in advance on Eventbrite at Arise Christian Arts Festival tickets.
