11-day festival planned along with 19-day ArtPrize competition in western Michigan


GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — An 11-day festival is planned along with Michigan's 19-day ArtPrize competition.

Organizers announced Friday that The Avett Brothers will play alongside singer-songwriter Brett Dennen and his band on Oct. 3 to kick off the event billed as "The Eddy" in Grand Rapids.

ArtPrize and event production company Porterhouse Presents say the event-within-an-event will include local art, concerts, food, craft beer and family-friendly creative art experiences. A riverside tent venue is planned and more details will be released later.

Michigan's annual ArtPrize competition is its seventh year. It runs Sept. 23 to Oct. 11 and artists will compete for $500,000 in prizes.
