Goodyear Lakeside Festival-CANCELLED
Saturday, April 18, 4-9:30 PM
To our West Valley Arts Community, working artists, patrons and art lovers near and far…
The wellbeing of our cultural community has been and always will be a key element of our mission of enriching the West Valley by growing a vibrant and connected arts and cultural community. Today’s circumstances require taking action to reduce group exposure to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.
It is with sadness and deep regret we must inform you of the City of Goodyear’s cancellation of our Goodyear Lakeside Music Fest on April 18th, 2020. We completely understand and support their decision, while being just as disappointed as you are. This family-friendly fest, one of our premier events drawing 10,000 people from across our community, has been an important vehicle for bringing our community together to celebrate the arts and showcasing a wide range of amazing talent.
It has also generated significant financial support for our arts programming. Our hope is that everyone who had planned to join us at GLMFest will consider other ways of helping us continue our mission. We’d respectfully ask you to consider what you might have spent enjoying the event as a donation to sustaining the life of West Valley Arts.
We are currently reviewing how recent events affect our additional arts programming. For further updates, sign up for our newsletter at westvalleyarts.org or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

We’re optimists, and despite these difficult times, we also see new opportunities! This is an excellent chance for all of us to explore additional means of growing and connecting our cultural community. We’ll be doing that on our end and would love to hear your ideas and suggestions…. (contact us)
We’re all in this together, now and in the future, and we remain even more strongly dedicated to our mission of enriching the West Valley by growing a vibrant and connected arts and cultural community. Your past generosity has enabled us to enliven the arts in the West Valley. On behalf of our local artists, students, and patrons, we’d like to thank you for your past generosity and express our appreciation in advance for your continuing support.
From all of us at the West Valley Arts Council, our hearts are with you. Take care.
