New Tampa Performing Arts Center's Fall Festival Celebrated the Arts with More Than 2,200 People

Big turnout for inaugural event shows strong demand for arts in New Tampa

New Tampa Performing Arts Center's inaugural Fall Festival proved the center meets the demand for an arts venue in New Tampa. The festival, which invited the community to see free performances from Tampa Bay arts groups spanning everything from classical ballet to improv comedy, was a tremendous success.

Throughout the weekend-long celebration, more than 2,200 people visited NTPAC's facility. Children got to play with violins, drums, cymbals, and more with The Florida Orchestra's Instrument Petting Zoo and likely went home singing "We Don't Talk About Bruno" after a screening of Disney's "Encanto" in NTPAC's state-of-the-art theater.

Families saw free performances from prominent arts organizations like The Tampa City Ballet, Opera Tampa, and New Tampa Players, while high school groups like Freedom High School Chorus and the Wharton High School marching band got to showcase their talents on stage.

The festival was just the beginning for NTPAC. Upcoming events include film screenings, New Tampa Players' production of "Shrek the Musical," and a new series called "New Tampa Unplugged," which is a spin on the hit show "MTV Unplugged" and will present acoustic performances from notable Tampa Bay musicians in a unique, intimate way with candlelit cabaret seating.
