Fall Festival At Watkins College Of Art & Design Set For Friday, September 23

Watkins College of Art & Design will hold its Fall Festival on Friday beginning at 6:00 p.m. The Fall Festival features a variety of fun, creative activities at the College’s Campus, located at 2298 MetroCenter Boulevard. Festivities will include: a trunk show featuring a variety of affordable student artwork including paintings, jewelry, pottery and more.

Tours of the new “Charles W. and Lee Ann Hawkins Residence Hall” will also be offered, and a student art show will be on exhibit in the Jack C. Massey Exhibit Hall.

Delicious food prepared by the owner of the newly-opened "Watkins Cafe" will be available, and music will be played by a student deejay. The Community Education staff will offer face painting for kids, and a screening of the Watkins Film School students’ Film 4 Productions takes place at 8:00 p.m. in the Watkins Theatre.

The public is invited to attend this free event. [Editorial Note: Watkins is the source of this announcement in its entirety; except for the picture of the residence hall, which I took. I've never actually had the food at "Watkins Cafe," so I could not judge for myself that it is "delicious," although I'm sure it is].

  1. As a student, and a friend of those that run/provide the food for the cafe, I can say first hand that the food is phenomenal. They are the previous owners of JJ's market on 21st and now run a catering company/bistro called JJ's bistro on Athens in Metro Center. Definately check them out. The bistro is open for lunch M-F and the prices are incredibly reasonable.
