2023 is Kenilworth ArtsFest’s Celebration Year – their Silver Jubilee, and the Kenilworth ArtsFest is on from May 26 - 28! It’s 25 years since their first exhibition with borrowed display boards and makeshift plinths in Kenilworth Hall.
It has been a wonderful journey so far and they intend to keep going! For a little town tucked away west of the range in the Hinterland, Kenilworth has presented quality art exhibitions over the years to become one of the Sunshine Coast’s important events on the arts calendar.
This year, as well as the usual raft of prizes, the ArtsFest is introducing a new category for 3D works. There will be a prize of $500 for Outdoor Art made from recycled materials. Now, there’s a challenge for 3D artists!
It’s not all visual arts. Poetry and music have their spots with Poetry at the Pub on Saturday May 27, followed by a music jam session with KADS (Kenilworth And District Singers) and other musicians.
Kenilworth Chamber of Commerce is helping with the Silver Jubilee celebrations, co-hosting with Kenilworth Arts Council a Family Fun Day on Sunday May 28. There will be entertainment for young and old alike.
