Batesville Area Arts Council’s annual Summer Celebration fundraiser

Batesville Area Arts Council’s annual Summer Celebration fundraiser returns this year on Saturday, June 18, at Lyon College’s Highland House (2030 Bearette Street) presented by First Community Bank. The event will feature live music by The Natural Disasters, dinner and drinks, outdoor lawn games, and a silent auction that includes unique artworks and goods from local makers. 

This year’s theme is “BAAC to Our Roots,” emphasizing the folk music and art that make our community unique while celebrating the history and impact of BAAC. With a fun, casual atmosphere and live music, Summer Celebration is the quintessential summer event. Enjoy this fun evening and help raise money for the arts! All proceeds from Summer Celebration will support BAAC’s mission to provide educational programs, art exhibitions, workshops, and community art projects in Batesville and the surrounding areas. 
Tickets are $40 in advance or $45 at the door, and are available at the Carlee’s Hallmark, the BAAC Gallery on Main, and online at Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For more information call (870) 793-3382.
