PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale is extending its call to artisans to participate in the new art and music festival Kaleidoscope, coming to the Palmdale Amphitheater on Saturday, Oct. 8.

“This is a great opportunity for artisans to not only display their work, but to engage, educate and promote the arts to the community,” stated Palmdale’s Recreation Supervisor Annie Pagliaro. “In a day and age where budget cuts are affecting the arts, the city of Palmdale is stepping up to the plate and committing time and resources to provide a much needed avenue for visual and performing arts.”

“I’m encouraging all artisans to become part of an event that will be personally rewarding and have positive implications through the exposure of the arts,” Pagliaro said. “If you have any questions about the application or requirements, please give me a call at 661-267-5611 and I’ll be glad to walk you through our simple process.”
“This is a commitment to show the power of what the arts really do express, how they make us feel and how they resonate with people,” Pagliaro added. “The city of Palmdale has more than 30 years of experience in event productions and we are putting our experience and resources into making Kaleidoscope a memorable and significant festival.”
