Arts on 3rd Newsletter

On September 22, 2013, Westchester’s premier and largest arts and entertainment festival will kick off its 12th year. The festival, which began with a humble attendance of approximately 3500 people, has grown to over 40,000 festival goers. The arts on third festival began in 1999 as a precursor to Mayor Ernest D. Davis vision to transform 3rd Street into an arts district. Mayor Davis then formed a task force to research the development of an arts district. This blue ribbon task force, called the Third Street Task Force was composed of each sector of the community and became the impetus behind the Arts On Third Festival. Art was the vehicle used to revitalized the area and as a catalyst to social change. The festival brings together hundreds of volunteers and is the largest, single community effort in Westchester, New York.
