Byrdcliffe presents the second annual Festival of the Arts, Friday through Sunday, June 14 – 16, 2013, at the Byrdcliffe Art Colony and Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, Woodstock, NY. Thirteen regional arts organizations will be presenting performances ranging from concerts, dance, stage plays, modern mystery, comedy to spoken word.
The mission of the Byrdcliffe Festival of the Arts is to embrace, celebrate and honor all of the performing arts in the tradition of Byrdcliffe and Woodstock. The Festival encompasses avant garde and traditional acts, featuring local and internationally recognized players – and gives area artists an opportunity to play for larger, more diverse audiences while at the same time, brings in outside performers to enrich the already plentiful offerings of the Hudson Valley. The Byrdcliffe Festival of the Arts takes its place among the new cultural traditions here in Woodstock, within the historic Byrdcliffe campus as well as in the town itself, long recognized around the world as the "colony of the arts".
