Artown 2014 opens on Tuesday, July 1 with lively performances by country artists Sherrié Austin and Mountain Heart. Austin will be the opener, followed by the acoustic music of Mountain Heart. Admission to the show at Wingfield Park is free and it will play from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fair warning - Artown opening night shows are always packed out. If you want to get into the park and actually get a place to sit, get there way early.
Get ready to go by checking out Artown's searchable listing of events or get a copy of The Little Book of Artown, available at numerous locations around town. For smartphones, there are free apps of the schedule available for iPhone, Android devices, and BlackBerry.

Give $3 to Keep Artown Free. With over 66% of its events free, Artown is continuing the campaign to solicit a few extra bucks to support this non-profit organization. The goal is to increase individual contributions so Artown can continue to present the high-caliber free programming attendees have come to expect. You can donate at various venues during Artown or go to the website and kick in a few bucks online.
