Fleshpot Festival for the Arts :: Aug 1-3 :: Forestville, NY
Fleshpot Festival for the Arts is a 3 day music and arts festival that takes place on 70 acres of beautiful countryside in upstate New York every summer.

Beautiful people come from all over the Continental United States to perform, participate and engage each other in a nurturing enviroment surrounded by art of all forms.

This years' festival will feature live music from Smackdab, and Sleeping Giant, as well as Lazlo Hollyfeld, the GAHU African Drum Ensemble, and many others, which are being announced daily here. .

This event marks only the 2 year anniversary of the AAAlliance Mobile Gallery Tent , which debuted at the Fleshpot in 2006. We will be there in force once again, displaying work, as well as creating and collaborating on some canvases and whatever else we come up with between now and then. We have room for as many AAAlliance member artists as we can possibly get together for this festival. Come on Down to Forestville.
