Philippi officials planning Art Stroll

PHILIPPI — Philippi Main Street will once again sponsor its annual Art Stroll celebrating the region’s arts.

This year’s event is scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m. April 20 throughout downtown Philippi.

“Artists of all types are invited to join us for this special event,” said Main Street Director Tammy Stemple.

She asked that visual, musical, dance and dramatic artists contact Main Street at 304-457-3700, ext. 226, to be part of the celebration.

Additionally, area business representatives who want to be exhibit sites for the Art Stroll are asked to call Main Street.

This annual event draws visitors into Main Street’s business locations and introduces many newcomers to the charm of downtown Philippi.

Last year’s Art Stroll brought the largest group in its seven-year history to downtown Philippi, with nearly 300 strollers registered.

Main Street also is seeking volunteers to lend a helping hand in the planning and conducting of the Art Stroll. Those interested in volunteering for the Art Stroll are asked to call the Main Street number listed above.
