A Festival of the Arts: April 24-26

It is with great regret that EIU's College of Arts & Humanities announces this year's Celebration: A Festival of the Arts, scheduled for April 22, 23 & 24, is being cancelled.

We began the year fully intending for the festival to take place, but with the Illinois State Budget impasse it became evident the festival cannot be presented. Please know this has been a VERY DIFFICULT choice to make.

While Celebration has been a 39 year Coles County tradition, it is hoped this will only be a one-year hiatus with Celebration returning April 21-23, 2017. Thank you for your past interest in Celebration and all of us Eastern Illinois University look forward to the Festival of the Arts returning.
