Utica City School District will be hosting its third annual Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, May 12 from 11 a.m. 3 p.m. in the main gym at Proctor High School.

Guests will enter through the Arcuri entrance of the school and festival attendants will be greeted by a carnival style display of treats, face painting and a variety of fair themed activities in the first floor cafeteria.

Student artwork will be on display in the halls leading up to the gym, where the rest of the exhibit will take place. This is a K-12 art exhibition, and all 13 schools in the Utica District will be represented at the event.

Musical performances will take place throughout the day featuring the Proctor High School Band, Choir, Moose Ensemble and Elementary Ensembles. There will be caricatures by artist Andrew Buffington, and the Ziyara Zanies will be present to entertain guests. Mohawk Valley Community College will have a Camera Obscura set up so that festival attendants can experience what it is like to be inside of a camera. It is anticipated to be a day of celebration and family fun for the district and community.
