Artrageous performing troupe brings art to First Fridays Sept. 6

Think beyond the canvas, expand your palette and get ready for an Artrageous experience for the entire family. The performing troupe will take over Festival Park for First Fridays Sept. 6.


Artrageous is a troupe of 12 artists, singers, dancers and musicians. Their high-energy performance is a combination of fine art, live music, singing, dancing, humor and interaction in a frenzy of movement and color. The troupe will bring its passion for the arts and will leave the audience smiling, singing and dancing along.


Head to Festival Park to enjoy the live performance, food trucks, cocktails, kids’ activities and more. Cocktails and family fun begins at 5 p.m., and the performance begins at 6 p.m. Please note, setup will be taking place for the Castle Rock Artfest Friday night, so Perry Street will be closed.


With yard games, family friendly activities and a themed run/walk, First Friday is the perfect night to bring the whole family Downtown. Find out more at CRgov.com/FirstFridays.


Art run helps kick off First Fridays and celebrates East Plum Creek Trail Extension

To celebrate the newly completed section of East Plum Creek Trail, there will also be a 10K commemorative run. Both 5K and 10K racers will be among the first on the new trail extension. Get more details about the event at CRgov.com/EPCTrailProject.
