Ryan Kilgore takes stage Saturday at 5 Arts Festival | News
ATLANTA (WXIA) – Saxophonist and Atlanta native Ryan Kilgore will take the center stage at this weekend’s 5 Arts Festival in the heart of Little Five Points on Saturday afternoon.
Kilgore will perform several songs from his new solo project Just Walk.
The street festival includes five arenas of art – visual, literary, recording, performing and crafts – among the many displays and expressions there. The festival is free and open to the public all day Saturday and includes live music, vendors, street performers, dance battles, body painting, STEM exhibits, live puppetry, community mural painting and much more.
The experience is truly immersive and interactive, and allows visitors to actively participate in the overall experience.
The Ryan Kilgore Foundation is sponsoring the festival’s main music stage, dubbed the 5 Spot.
“I wanted to create a festival stage to grow artists,” he said. “This is the crux of my foundation, to mentor, teach and inspire artists. We give them guidance and create a launch pad for their careers.”
The Festival will be open all day Saturday, beginning at 10 am, and Kilgore and his band take the main stage at 5 pm. At 10 pm, Kilgore and his band will appear in the After 5 jam session at Ten ATL Bar and Lounge in East Atlanta Village.
