Full Spectrum: 25 Arts Events Coming Up in Covington

Covington’s arts, culture, and creativity fill the city’s fall calendar with FULL SPECTRUM, with twenty-five events still scheduled in September and October. 
 
The city’s effort to market the arts began in September 2009 with a one month celebration. The arts presence has grown exponentially and so has the FULL SPECTRUM calendar. 
 
The fun began last weekend with the Mainstrasse Village’s annual Oktoberfest. Upcoming are performances, gallery shows, Park(ing) Day in the MadLot, old and new festivals including well-established Art Off Pike and debuting Devou Grass and the Good People Festival.
 
All of it “provides more opportunities for residents and visitors to enjoy a day in Covington,” said Cate Becker, Covington’s Cultural Arts Director.
 
Here’s what’ coming up. For a complete list of FULL SPECTRUM events with details and links, visit www.covingtonarts.com.
