‘Paint a Peach” Art Contest - Call for Peaches! - 

A Community Partnership between Live Nation, The Peach Music Festival at Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain, Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Department and First Friday Scranton




What is the “Paint a Peach” Art Contest?

Live Nation and Toyota Pavilion seek organizations and artists to sponsor, paint, and decorate wooden 4’ x ‘4 peaches as promotion of the 2nd Annual Peach Music Festival presented by the Allman Brothers Band on August 15-18, 2013. Peaches can be decked out, painted or ornamented in any way but must include the following words on it: “Peach Music Festival 2013” and “Montage Mountain”.

Proceeds raised from the Paint a Peach Art Contest will go to First Friday Scranton to support the monthly Artwalk. Starting at the April 5th First Friday event, peaches will be available for distribution.

Once decorated, artists and organizations are encouraged to display peaches for all to enjoy from April to August. Examples can be: store fronts, lobbies or reception areas, exterior facades or any other place highly visible area throughout the city of Scranton. To encourage creativity in displaying the peach, a separate prize will be awarded to the peach displayed in the most unique manor.

All peaches will then be gathered and displayed at the August 2nd First Friday event for a final judging ceremony and prize distribution. Peaches will then be transported to The Peach Music Festival grounds at Toyota Pavilion starting August 15th.

This is a great and affordable marketing tool for an organization or artist to take advantage of a vibrant city downtown, the widely popular First Friday Events and over 30,000 people expected at The Peach Music Festival.
