County Arts-In is a summer performing arts/leadership experience for youth that have completed grades 2 – one year post high school. Singing, dancing, and acting, plus leadership and team building activities all culminate in a 30-minute musical revue that is performed during the Anoka County Fair and the Minnesota State Fair.
