**THIS WEEKEND** Arti Gras Costume Fundraiser

Arti Gras

Arti Gras Costume Party, a new fundraiser from Fairbanks Arts Association, will take place at the University Of Alaska Pub on Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 8pm-midnight.  The event will feature an active membership drive, craft booth to make your own Arti Gras-themed mask,  costume contest and live music from local band Barcelona Boys Choir. Arti Gras goers who become Fairbanks Arts members at the event will be entered in drawings for prizes generously donated by local businesses. A costume contest will decide the King and Queen of Arti Gras, and a rousing dance party will cap of the evening’s festivities!

So what is Arti Gras? This first-time event for Fairbanks Arts is an opportunity for the Fairbanks community to exhibit their costume-making prowess by dressing like an artist or work of art & giving it a Mardi Gras twist.
