Coming Soon: The 2021 Festival

The third biennial Guilford Performing Arts Festival (GPAF) will take place in September 2021. The multi-day event, begun in 2017, features professional and amateur performers from throughout New England and is meant particularly to showcase the work of Connecticut artists in music, dance, theater and spoken word. The festival combines free entertainment with educational workshops in schools and public spaces. There’s something for everyone, from toddlers to golden-agers!


Just about everyone involved in the conception, administration, planning and production of the festival is a volunteer. We have a hard-working board of directors and committees that oversee development, marketing, programming and education. As we begin planning the 2021 festival, we’re especially looking for people with experience in fundraising, marketing, social media, community outreach, show production and information technology.

Join the festival and be part of the fun. Email us if you’re interested. We look forward to meeting you!
