Given the current forecast for severe storms on Sunday, September 9th, the outdoor arts activities have been cancelled. Sunday’s live music has been moved indoors to downtown venues Howard’s Club H, The Stone’s Throw, and Grounds for Thought. The Black Swamp Arts Festival is in full swing Friday and Saturday, so please join us for a rocking good time.

This marks the first time in the festival’s 26-year history that the art show has been cancelled. This has been a difficult decision for the festival committee. The safety of festival patrons, participants and artists is paramount to the Black Swamp Arts Festival. The decision was made in consultation with Bowling Green city administration, public works and safety officials.
“Threat of severe weather has led us to determine for the safety of the artists, we will cancel the art show and Youth Arts after Saturday. Music and Art as scheduled on Saturday. Sunday’s music has been moved to indoor venues. Thank you to the Brad Gilbert of the Emergency Management Agency for the detailed reports. Thank you to the City of Bowling Green for their rapid response and dedication to public service and safety.” William Donnelly , Festival Chair
