Festival of the Arts 2019
April 2-7


Spring at Sac State is the season for arts

A mélange of musical offerings, a dreamy Shakespearean play, the modern world of ceramic art, and the annual campus-wide celebration of the University’s arts and humanities – it’s all part of Sacramento State’s Spring 2018 Arts Experience.

Festival of the Arts

FoTA once again highlights the talents of the University’s arts and humanities students and faculty, with six days of art, music, theater, dance, discussions and presentations. This year’s edition runs April 10-15 and includes attractions such as: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Dance Sampler, Art History Talks, and renowned jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas performing with Sac State’s own nationally recognized Jazz Ensembles.

U-Create! returns to the Festival for its fourth year from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 12. This downtown street faire features faculty and students collaborating on music and dance performances, art presentations, and a surprise or two including food trucks and outdoor entertainment at Seventh and S streets. Verge Center for the Arts, Beatnik Studios, and Insight Coffee Roasters serve as hosts and venues for many of the attractions.

And of course, it all concludes with the Festival’s popular Sunday Funday, a daylong lineup of family-friendly attractions, events, and hands-on activities, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 15.
