Fall for the Arts this October | Arts & Culture
More than 30 local arts and cultural organizations are coming together to make you "Fall for the Arts" this October.
It's part of a nation-wide celebration of Arts and Humanities month. Art classes, festivals, performances and exhibits are among the 350 events planned for October alone around Huntsville.
"The sheer number and range of arts, cultural, and entertainment events in October is evidence that there is always something to do in Huntsville and the surrounding region." said Allison Dillon-Jauken, the Executive Director of the Arts Council. "While October is National Arts and Humanities month, very few of the community's October arts and cultural events were scheduled specifically because of 'Fall for the Arts'. Every month has outstanding opportunities to enjoy the arts in the Huntsville/Madison County area."
