Azul a Venue for Art

Blue River, Oregon 

Art installations, street musicians, live painting, hula hooping, a puppet workshop theater for all ages, and a 'scavenger hunt' to inspire interaction between onlookers, artists, and performers. If you would like to share your talents with the community, booth/performance space is free, but you must be actively demonstrating hoe you make the art you are selling. We would be thrilled if you set up your easel, share your music, or help clean up after the party. Child and youth artists are highly encouraged to participate. Your ideas and help are more than welcome.
