First Night Monterey is excited to announce the first El Día de Los Muertos exhibition at the Greenfield Cultural Arts Center established by FNM in 2014. This show will celebrate the rich color and history of the holiday. Artists, schools and community members created traditional, contemporary and personal Day of the Dead inspired artwork for installation at the GCAC. Please join us in celebrating this tradition with music and dance on November 2, 4:30 to 8:00 PM. We will unveil the building mural at 6PM.
First Night Monterey produced the 2016 Greenfield Harvest Festival as an outreach project of ArtWorks! Attendees began the day at the 5K/1K Run/Walk followed by the community parade kicking off the festivities at 11:15. El Camino Real was filled with live music, art activities, food vendors, and artisans. We also had pony rides, a petting zoo and face painting. Families enjoyed 5 hours of entertainment, with three band stages and a dance stage.Read Moreabout The Harvest Festival
