Boneyard Arts Festival
The annual Boneyard Arts Festival (named for the creek which stretches through the heart of the twin cities) has become a major event featuring many venues and all kinds of art. Here is what the 40 North site says about it:
Presented annually by 40 North | 88 West and sponsored by The News-Gazette and Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, the Boneyard Arts Festival has grown into an ‘open source’ festival that Champaign County residents have truly made their own. Last spring, the Boneyard featured over 130 different venues – both indoors and out – where residents and visitors alike could partake of an incredibly diverse range of performing, spoken and visual art offered by nearly 500 artists from all backgrounds.
There is even an app for the festival…again from 40North.org:
