The Venue prepares for second year

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Venue returns for the second year in Rochester on Saturday.

The event is put on by a group called C4 - Concerned Citizens for a Creative Community.

It starts Saturday at 4 p.m. with family time and runs until midnight.

The night features a line up of local bands, art exhibits and art activities.

You can even get in on the art with activities like a graffiti tent.

"We're really celebrating all the arts in Rochester for all the things that have been coming about for the people and for the artists and people who support the arts," said Brianna Truax, the Venue project manager.

Those involved say the growth in the event this year reflects a growing and changing art scene in Rochester.

"The first Venue, it was good and it was a good turn out, but a lot of people didn't hear about it. It was semi-underground, and now a year later, it's already up and running. The arts and the creative scene is really up and running," said Bobby Marines one of the featured artists.

Tickets are available and can be purchased online or at Press Coffee in Rochester for anywhere from $20 to $100.
