The Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) is a busy place this week, especially on August 23. There are several events happening throughout the center that evening, one of which is the annual Fall Arts Kickoff. The TCA is home to several performance art organizations that provide an array of outstanding performances throughout the year and this Friday they’ll give us a few highlights from their 2013-14 seasons. Participating groups are CONDER/dance, Desert Dance Theatre, A Ludwig Dance Theatre, Childsplay, Tempe Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Arizona Wind Symphony, Arizona Academy of the Performing Arts, Tempe Community Chorus and Friends of TCA.

The Fall Arts Kickoff will take place in the TCA’s lovely lobby and will feature dance, art, music, ticket giveaways and innovative experiences. Guests can also visit the TCA Gallery to see the summer exhibition, Animal Crackers. Finally Friday Songwriters’ Showcase performer Gary Marsh will entertain.

The Fall Arts Kickoff is free and takes place this Friday, 5-7 p.m.   Following the Kickoff, stay for more great entertainment  at A Night out with Liliya Souslova, Funny Times 10 or Mumbai Beats with acclaimed Indian singer Pankaj Udhas.
