This April, the Wayne County Arts Alliance will celebrate The Great Wall of Honesdale. They will host an opening reception on April 30th. Details are still in the works, but this occasion is something you will want to experience.
Studio tours at the Wayne County Arts Alliance allow the artists to open their studio and meet people in their own space. This year’s annual tour will be July 7th through the 9th. These tours are free and open to the public and are an excellent time to purchase an original work of art directly from the artist. Tours will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
The Honesdale community always looks forward to the Annual Halloween Bash put on by the WCAA held every October. This year’s Halloween Bash will take place October 28th at The Cooperage. There will be a costume competition, dance party, live music by Steppin Eddy, and food available for purchase. The event will be from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
