First National Bank and Trust Company is a proud gold level sponsor for the annual, three-day music and art festival, Ashley for the Arts, which will take place on August 11-13 at Memorial Park in Arcadia, Wisconsin. This unique event raises money in support of art programs, schools, and local non-profits, while providing affordable access to live music, art and family fun. In 2021, the nonprofits raised over $635,000 for more than 65 participating non-profit organizations, including 28 local schools.

This music and arts festival was originally established by Ashley Furniture Industries, LLC in 2009. This event is made possible due to host sponsor, Ashley for the Arts and many other local business and individuals.

The weekend will feature eight main stage shows and performances from some of today’s biggest names including Brooks & Dunn, Brantley Gilbert, Train, Cole Swindell, Night Ranger, and more. Additionally, area schools will also be featured throughout the weekend with student vocal and instrumental musicians. Lots of food, a glow run and fireworks are also on the docket this year.

“We are glad to be part of this community-centric event that draws so many to our local area. Lifting up the arts, music, and adding to the economic development in Arcadia with Ashley for the Arts and giving back to local non-profits is a win-win for everyone involved,” said First National Bank and Trust Company, Vice President of Community Banking, Josh Grzadzielewski.
