Come enjoy an evening of art, drama, and music at our 7th annual John Adams Academy Arts Festival! (formerly known as Arts in the Park) This year it will be held on Friday, May 17th on campus at the Jefferson Building. As in past years, the festival will include art exhibits, secondary/ after-school drama and choir performances, and food/craft tables that the entire family can enjoy!

Tickets to the performances are $5.50 online/$7 at the door for one show and $1 for each additional one. Performing scholars, parents volunteering at the event, and JAA staff will receive complementary admission. Space is limited, so we recommend buying tickets ahead of the event. Online tickets are now on sale at https://johnadamsacademy.ticketspice.com/arts-festival-2019 and will be available until noon the day of the concert as long as seats are available.
These types of events would not be possible without a small army of dedicated parent volunteers. Please click over to the Arts Festival Volunteer post and consider signing up to help supervise scholars, take tickets, stamp hands, direct parking, help with lights/sound tech, hair/make-up, video record, clean up, etc. As a thank you for your service, all parent volunteers will get in to the performances for free.
Please look for specific information from your scholars’ teacher for information if they are performing. Information for choir performers is posted here: https://www.parentsquare.com/feeds/1515457
We look forward to seeing you there!
