Austin Veterans Arts Festival 2019
A local veterans arts festival, AVA Fest, will be kicking off from October 12 to November 16 in Austin. The festival was created to help raise awareness of veterans suicide and the power of healing through art therapy. Run by a team of veterans, the festival includes events such as art exhibits, musical performances, theater productions, comedy shows, a writer’s conference, a health and wellness conference, and more. AVA Fest encourages the Austin community, including veterans and their families, to attend to learn more about these healing methods and to celebrate our nation’s veterans.
