Rise Up Festival – Celebrating Revitalization – August 21, 2014

Rise Up Festival- Official Announcement

Rise is thrilled to announce the “Rise Up Festival – Celebrating Revitalization”! If you are an artist that is interested in having a booth in our juried Artist’s Village click here.
In September of 2013 we launched our new name and brand with the “Pop Up Street Party”. Now that we have been using the name Rise for almost year we created a new name for our yearly event. The festival is part of our continuing efforts to raise awareness about the importance of the revitalization of the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our work provides invaluable connections that have a positive and lasting impact on people, the neighborhoods they live in, the economy and the region. The event will take place in Crown Square (home of Crown Candy Kitchen) on Thursday, August 21, 2014 from 6 PM to 10 PM.
This will be the largest festival celebrating city revitalization in the Midwest. Bring your family and friends!
