Westchester Arts and Music Block Party
Sep 15 @ 10:00 am – 8:00 pm

The Emerson Avenue Community Garden is hosting the Third Annual Westchester Arts & Music (WAM) Block Party — a free day-long community event with live music and dance, art, vendors & community booths, kids activities, garden tours, food trucks, and socializing. Kentwood will host a booth to share a bit about what an awesome school Kentwood is and how arts and music play a role at our school. At the booth we will distribute fliers/information, have a little project if kids want to make something, and sell our t-shirts. As a volunteer you get to tell people about the school and meet people from the community. Please join us!
