We may be running out of ways to state how hard the pandemic has been on everyone, but creative people will never run out of ways to come together and heal as a community. Classics for Kids and 90.9 Classical WGUC are proud to be part of the 6th Annual Price Hill Creative Community Festival, coming to the new ARCO event center at 3301 Price Ave. on Friday, July 23.

Don't miss out on this family-friendly event, a celebratory staple in the Price Hill community, with music, art, activism, tours of the newly renovated ARCO building (a former Masonic Lodge built in 1912), food trucks, and more. Some of your favorite Cincinnati Public Radio personalities will be at the WGUC/Classics for Kids booth, with some fun giveaways and a chance to connect with listeners in person. How did we ever take that for granted?

WGUC has a history of supporting Price Hill Will programs and events, especially through their outstanding youth orchestra, MYCincinnati, which will be performing at the festival. This year's event will also serve as the grand opening of the ARCO (Arts+Community) venue, and it's the first Price Hill Creative Community Festival for Kate Query, WGUC's new Community Events and Volunteer Coordinator.

''As a public radio station, it is our job to not only provide great classical music programming, but to also be involved and engaged with the communities we serve. At the Price Hill Creative Community Festival we have the opportunity to inspire the next generation of classical music lovers. How exciting is that? If we walk away with even just one kid who has found a new interest in music, that's a success.''

So be sure to swing by, enjoy some of the live performances, hit the food trucks, and say hi to your Cincinnati Public Radio friends, as we strive to come together and lift one another in these trying times. It's what creative communities do.

The 6th annual Price Hill Creative Community Festival will be held 3-9 p.m. Friday, July 23, at ARCO, 3301 Price Ave. The event is free.
