The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) Board of Directors and the 2019 Artsfest Performance Committee are delighted to invite performing artists of the region to be a part of this two-day celebration of the arts. This year’s festival will be held on May 4 & 5, 2019. It is our hope that you will participate in this community-wide event.
