Saturday, June 23rd, come to Cesar Chavez Park in West Modesto (located at 4th and G Street) for the Get Up, Stay Up Graffiti Festival. There will be live hip-hop, rap battles, free BBQ, literature and zine tables, and ongoing graffiti demonstrations on panels throughout the day.
If you are interested in reserving a board to paint on, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring a donation of $7 (or more) to help pay for the boards. This year we will be bringing more boards so we hope to be able to feature more artists. Hip-hop performers, please email: RHHRorg@live.com if you are interested in playing.

Later that night, there will be a free beat-making workshop. Join us back at Firehouse 51, where you can learn how to take some old records, a turntable, a mixer, a laptop, and FruityLoops and make your very own Hip-Hop beats. Add a microphone and a (decently) soundproof area and you can make a whole Hip-Hop album! The event is free and you can view the facebook page here.
