"Hoodstock" Arts and Music Festival Returns to Benefit Tempe's Broadmor Elementary
Tempe's Broadmor Elementary is home to some seriously creative students and some very cool parents who've joined forces for the past five years to produce Hoodstock.
Think indie music and arts festival meets school fundraising event and you're on the path to what's been an annual showcase of emerging talent (and a cool excuse to fund creative programming for kids).
The Broadmor PTA (which, full disclosure includes a couple New Times contributors) announced this week that this year's Hoodstock, on Saturday, May 4 from 5 to 8 p.m., will include the school's annual Spring Art Auction with work from students grades first through fifth.
