Whirlybird Music & Arts Festival
Spirit Animal Productions is excited to announce the second annual Whirlybird Music & Arts Festival, back this summer in Downtown Jamestown July 18-20, 2019. The Whirlybird experience is expanding to be a three day music and arts extravaganza celebrating local and regional performance talent across various venues indoors and out taking place in beautiful downtown Jamestown, New York. Whirlybird is bringing the thriving arts community of Jamestown together in collaboration with an army of incredible local organizations, venues and businesses for a good cause and a great time.
Whirlybird 2018 succeeded in raising and donating over one thousand dollars to local non-profit youth organizations. Whirlybird 2019 is aiming to double that donation to raise much needed funds for Infinity & YMCA Camp Onyahsa music and scholarship programs. Whirlybird was also a positive factor for the downtown Jamestown economy with some local businesses reporting their best numbers of the summer. This year, Whirly is proudly partnering with local arts events; Third Thursday at Winter Garden Plaza, Karate Sleepover Open Mic, The Wine Cellar Thursday Night Open Mic and Pulse Poetry Slam at Labyrinth Press Company, and Jamestown Public Market.
The lineup for Whirlybird 2019 will be announced on Monday March 18, 2019, and will feature some exciting big names as well as a very special reunion of Jamestown’s favorite indie rock outfit alongside many, many other mind-blowing talents from the our region, Buffalo and beyond. Whirlybird is happy to invite folks and families of all ages to this event, as half of the entire three-day festival will be free & appropriate for all ages. We look forward to offering the region a bigger and better community-centric event that celebrates music, art, unity, peace, and fun for all.
