Ashley for the Arts starting Thursday in Arcadia

Arts of all types will take center stage in Trempealeau County this weekend.

Ashley for the Arts starts Thursday in Arcadia.

The annual festival is expected to draw thousands to Memorial Park.

This year’s event will feature the country music group Rascal Flatts, along with rock band Daughtry.

As the event prepares to celebrate their 10th anniversary, organizers say they enjoy bringing big sound to a small town.

“Ashley for the Arts at its core is we want to provide affordable access to the arts, not a lot of people can get to experience everything that Ashley for the Arts has,” said Cole Bawek, Event Director of Ashley for the Arts.

Last year the event raised more than $400,000 for charity organizations in our region.
