February is Heart Month with a national focus on raising heart health awareness.

We are asking local artists to decorate these hearts, using the medium of their choice, to convey a message of heart health awareness.

When you visit Rome, you can't help but notice all the musical talent. Not an evening goes by without multiple musical acts performing around town. RACA got to showcase that talent at the 2nd Annual AllRoads Music Festival, a day-long music festival held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at Heritage Park to benefit the Rome Area Council for the Arts (RACA). AllRoads featured 28 local bands. The event included all genres of music in order to celebrate Rome and Floyd County's immense musical talent. There were 2 stages showcasing 12 hours of continuous music from 11am to 11pm. This is an all ages event complete with local on-site artists, food vendors, beverage vendors, sponsor booths, children's activities and much more.
Stay tuned for information on the 3rd Annual AllRoads Music Festival scheduled for May 3, 2014!
