Urban Art Festival - 2010 Info

Mandi, Lisa and Johanna are at it again.

The staff of the Urban Art Festival has announced that this year’s event will take place Sunday, June 27th at People’s Park in Tacoma. The all-day festival, now in its 6th year, strives to make art more accessible to the community through multiple live music stages, DJs, spoken word, graffiti, burlesque, bellydance, stilt walkers, fashion shows, performance art, beer garden, food and craft vendors, and kid-friendly activities.

The Urban Art Festival is currently seeking performers in all mediums, vendors, artists, and volunteers, as well as sponsors for 2010. Several sponsorship levels are available and in-kind donations are gladly accepted. Those interested in sponsoring can contact Johanna Gardner at

Event details and vendor information will be posted as it becomes available. For more information, visit

Yeah...I'm down with the spoken word. 'Cause on the 'top, in case you haven't heard, MFTH rules supreme from South 9th Street to 23rd. But don't just drive by when on stage my rhymin' flies by. When you see the whites of my eyes, I'll be upside down spinnin'. F O O L ! If I'm lyin' I'm grinnin'. So park that '75 Granada and get wit it at People's Park. It don't matter if you're light or dark, Afro Sheen or Mr. Clean. 'Cause this June, come global warming or galaxy cold, The Urban Art Festival will provide a feast for mind, body, and soul. And you don't want to miss that if you could. Yours truly, Mofo from the Hood.

Very nice. Let me know if you want a spot on the performance art stage. I know the person in charge of it. ;-)

Mofo headlining the UAF 2010?!! I'll be there, no question. The makings of a great day. Pho King, Tempest, and Mofo in the park.

maybe the CLAW could have a table to do portraits or something.

NIN- Awesome idea! I'd sit for one, for sure. And if you were collecting donations for your scholarship fund, I bet there'd be no booth fee... (hint hint)...

we do like to collect money for our scholarship fund!


I'm Mandi. I've lived in the Tacoma area my whole life and I love it. I'm not a very prolific blogger but I do what I can.
