    MKAF has canceled the first two concerts in the 2020 series. These artists may be rescheduled at a later date:

    Apr 23 Jeffrey Steele
    Apr 30 M-80's

    After careful consideration and observation, the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) will POSTPONE the April 23rd and April 30th Concerts in the Village. Our concert committee is working diligently to reschedule these great events with Jeffrey Steele and the M-80s.

    Currently, all May, June, September, and October 2020 concerts and events are as scheduled, and the MKAF Executive Committee will evaluate these events in the coming weeks. We promise to provide you with updated information as soon as possible.

    We will keep our website www.MKAF.org and Facebook events page updated, so please keep a lookout there for new concert dates and information.

    As we navigate through the unknown, we hope you will look to the Arts as a hopeful way to process the uncertainty. Listen to music, watch a creative documentary, paint, draw, cook and find comfort in knowing that Art is Life and we will emerge from this together.
