Dawkins invites constituents to 5th Annual Olney Youth Arts Festival

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 2 – State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., is inviting residents of the 179th Legislative District and neighbors from across Philadelphia to attend the 5th Annual Olney Youth Arts Festival from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 in the 500 block of West Chew Avenue at North 5th Street, Philadelphia.

“This is a great opportunity for our neighbors to witness the transforming power of the arts and the multi-cultural talent of our city’s children and youth,” Dawkins said. “By getting involved in arts, they open a pathway to access their deepest and most authentic selves. This provides them with a creative outlet for expression and reflection, both fundamental aspects for their lives as adults.”

Dawkins and his staff will provide assistance on any state-related issue constituents may have.

The rain location is St. Paul's Lutheran Church at 5918 N. 5th St., Philadelphia.
