Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs

A Free, Must Attend Event for Creative College-Bound Students


Arlington, VA—College-bound high school students interested in pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies in the areas of music, dance, theater, visual arts, graphic design, and other related disciplines are encouraged to attend the National Association for College Admission Counseling’s (NACAC) Boston Performing and Visual Arts College Fair.


The New Orleans Performing and Visual Arts College Fair will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at the Pontchartrain Convention & Civic Center from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Admission is FREE and open to the public.  


At NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs, students, parents and art institutions take center stage. These fairs allow college-bound students interested in the arts to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from colleges, universities, conservatories, studios, festivals, and other educational institutions with specialized programs in the visual and performing arts.


Students can now register prior to attending these events.  This makes navigating the fair and collecting information from multiple colleges and universities much easier for students. By registering, students can print a bar coded confirmation to be used on-site at the fair as an electronic ID. Register online at or via smart phone at


Attendees learn about educational opportunities, admission and financial aid, portfolio days, audition and entrance requirements, student life, and much more.


While plenty of information is available for college-bound students with traditional interests, not as many resources exist for those who are more artistically-inclined. NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs fill a vital need for the growing number of students pursuing college degrees in music, theater, art, dance, visual arts, graphic design and writing. These fairs offer a unique opportunity to get the inside scoop on what it takes to obtain a degree in the arts.


More than 20,000 students attend NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs annually. This fall, NACAC will sponsor Performing and Visual Arts Fairs in 19 locations throughout the country, including New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Denver, and Washington, D.C.
