Young Audiences Charter School celebrates its 6th Annual YACS Fest

GRETNA, La (press release) – Young Audiences Charter School will hold its 6th Annual YACS Fest on Saturday, March 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the Kate Middleton Campus at 1407 Virgil St. Gretna, La. The entire community is invited to join the family-friendly fun.   

The event will feature performances by OperaCréole, Ivoire Spectacle and YACS students, as well as carnival games, inflatables, a dunk booth and arts and crafts booths led by professional teaching artists. Refreshments, including sweets from the YACS Parent Community Organization bake sale, will be available for purchase.

Christine A. Guillory is generously supporting this event as lead sponsor. Other sponsors include the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Arts Council New Orleans. Proceeds from YACS Fest will support the academic and artistic growth of our creative learners, particularly as the school expands to additional campus space to accommodate YACS’s extension to pre-K through high school.
