Go Paddles Up! for ARTS


On the first Saturday in November, more than 200 community members come together for the annual Harvestfest gala in Fayetteville, TX,  to support Arts for Rural Texas and the important role the arts play in a child’s life.

Since 2004, volunteers have been putting on the Harvestfest gala to raise awareness and money to bring fine art opportunities to children in our rural communities. At the center of this event is an art auction, featuring coveted pieces by local and national artists. Since the pieces are generously donated by the artists, the dollars generated by the auction 100% benefit Arts for Rural Texas and its programs in Fayette and surrounding counties.

This event is well-attended by community members who have made a conscious decision to do something good for children. Event Co-Chairs Alisa Rowe and Linda Hudson express heartfelt gratitude to the table sponsors and auction donors. “Those who help with ARTS' mission, whether artist, donor, teacher or patron, are indeed helping to change lives for the better and we thank them," says Rowe, “We all must support the future and we do that by educating and enriching our children.”

Harvestfest 2019 promises to delight.  Enjoy to shine of Stars Across Texas at this year's event.
