ArtoberFest's family-oriented program will feature performances from singers, dancers, and musicians. Additionally, there will be plenty of great food, a bike rodeo, and a pet adoption event hosted by the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter.
Arts & Crafts Displays
More than twenty artists and crafters will set up booths to display their artwork. Numerous types of art will be represented, including photography, pottery making, jewelry, oil, acrylic, pastels, sculpture, and watercolor.
ArtoberFest will begin at 10 a.m. with the Presentation of Colors by cadets from the Moreno Valley High School Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps. Other performers include poets, singers, folklorico and a choir.
Kids ages 4-12 are invited to bring their bicycle, helmet, and close-toed shoes to participate in the Bike Rodeo. Community Now has sponsored this activity to teach children bike safety and handling skills. The Bike Rodeo course is designed to be highly interactive and will allow children to experience various traffic situations as both pedestrians and cyclists.
Food & Fun
Local food vendor Tacos El Tenampa will be selling some of the best tacos in town. The fun will continue with the “MoVal Rocks” rock decoration project. Kids can decorate a rock with their favorite Moreno Valley place or memory to hide in our community and remind our residents that MoVal certainly does “rock!”
