A Manassas-based multimedia event is just around the corner.
The City of Manassas and Historic Manassas, Inc. are hosting One Love Manassas from May 18 to May 20.
The event aims to offer artists a place to perform and share their work with the community.
“We are excited for the opportunity this event presents for artists of all varieties and the many people who will be able to enjoy this three-day art experience,” City Manager Patrick Pate stated.
One Love Manassas will feature more than 50 performers, a speaker series, and an art competition, according to a release.
It will also offer panels and workshops that focus on various crafts, including cake decorating and quilling.
Artists will display and sell their pieces throughout Saturday at Marketplace on Center Street.
Art pieces can also be seen at the Juried Art Show at Jirani Coffeehouse.
A 2-dimensional art display will feature 100 artwork that judges have selected.
The top three pieces will be recognized with cash prizes at an artist reception that will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
On Friday at 4 p.m., The City of Manassas will unveil sculptures that students from Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) have created. They will be displayed in downtown Manassas for a year.
Performances will begin on Friday at 6:15 p.m. at the Harris Pavilion.
Pete Evick, owner of Shining Sol Candle, Co. and the Bret Michaels Band and EVICK’s lead guitarist, will play at 8:15 p.m.
On Saturday, Jamaican-native Sahmuel will begin performing reggae music at 8 p.m.
