Visual & Performing Arts College Fair Comes To Dillard

Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs give colleges, universities, festivals, conservatories and other postsecondary institutions the opportunity to meet with thousands of college-bound students and their parents.
For the growing number of students pursuing a college degree in music, theater, art, dance, and other related disciplines, this event offers a unique opportunity to get a head start on planning for college.


Student registration is an easier and much faster way for colleges and universities to get your information so that they can follow up with you after the fair. When you register, you enter your contact information, academic interests, graduation year and your high school and then receive your own personalized barcode. Once you print this barcode out and take it to the fair, college representatives can scan them as a way to retrieve this information from you, eliminating the need to fill out information cards.
