Rhythm & Words Date: Saturday, June 8
Time: 9 a.m.–2 p.m.
Location: Burnsville Performing Arts Center, 12600 Nicollet Avenue, Burnsville, MN 55337
We’ve never attended the Rhythm and Words festival at Burnsville Performing Arts Center, and I really want to go this year. There will be some great local bands, a little theater, several authors, some art and active play.
9:15–10 a.m.: The Bazillions.
The Bazillions are the perfect band for this festival. They are a couple of local teachers — Adam and Kristin Marshall — who started writing music for their students and ended up forming this band. There music is both fun and educational. You can check some of it out here.
10:30–11:15 a.m.: The Okee Dokee Brothers.
What would a local children’s music festival be without the Grammy Award winning Okee Dokee Brothers?
VIP Suite (arts & crafts)
10 a.m.–1 p.m.: Horns, Shakers, and Tambourines — drop-in crafts with ArtStart
