Longview hosts world-class professional performances from the Ballet, Opera, and Symphony. Both the Gregg County Historical Museum and Longview Museum of Fine Arts have permanent collections and changing exhibits. ArtsView Children's Theatre brings live performances to the stage several times a year. The Symphonic Band features local musicians in four concerts a year. And now, Arts Longview has a world-class blues music festival. We invite you to be a part of the Arts in the Piney Woods.
For the past 8 years, the Corporation has been blessed by its association with the Music City Texas, Inc, the Linden Economic Development Corporation, and the many sponsors and volunteers from the Linden/Cass County Community. Clearly, the Music City Texas Theater is a one-of-a-kind venues with a very personal feel, and the board and staff of the theater create a down-home atmosphere that cannot be matched anywhere. So there is a sadness in moving the festival. In the current economy, it was necessary to find a larger venue that could support a festival.
We hope that our fans will accept the move and join us in Longview for the festival which is scheduled for September 12-13, 2014.
The lineup will be posted once the performers are booked and under contract.
Longview is the home to ABC Auto, who in partnership with Shreveport's World of Wheels and Music Mountain Water, hosted the car show. Plans are underway to have a larger car show on Saturday, September 13.

Following supper, the smokin' hot Eric Gales will provide a private concert. Eric is on a Texas Tour and offered to stop in Linden and thank those folks that make the festival possible. He has a number of concerts in the tour with The Peterson Brothers Band as his opening act. (Way to go Glenn & Alex!)
If you are not a festival volunteer, you may be able to catch Eric at one of his concerts: http://www.ericgalesband.com. If you have thought about becoming a sponsor, but would like to know more, or meet those who are involved, please contact us and come to this private event and check us out.
