The Buoyancy Teen Art and Music Festival will take place June 3, featuring live teen bands, art and wellness tents, carnival rides and much more. Organizers of the event are still looking for student art submissions and performances.
Located at the Mitchell Park Amphitheater and hosted by both the Teen Arts Council and the Palo Alto Children’s Theatre, this event is a fun opportunity for students to socialize and watch their peers perform.
“Students may see some of their teachers get dunked at the dunk tank, there’s free food and activities, and if they’d like a chance to perform with their band or with a smaller group, it’s a wonderful opportunity to,” said Emily Zhang, head of the committee for her second year in a row.
Additionally, student artists will be able to display their works of art in the festival’s gallery. These pieces will be evaluated by a panel of judges and each artist will have the chance to win a $250 gift card to an art store of their choice. Three runner-up winners will receive a $50 gift card, also to an art store of their choice.
To assure a performance spot, Paly bands or musical groups can fill out a Google form prior to the date of the event to receive up to a 30 minute time slot.
The event is free, but requires high school identification upon entry.
