The 2nd East End Music & Arts Festival, presented by uniphi good, is returning to the Hamptons on Friday, September 18th through Sunday, September 20th. The weekend-long happening will showcase music, film, art, entertainment, and education.

On Saturday, September 19th, the Festival will feature Kids Day: "Art & Astronauts" at the Community Center at the Springs Community Presbyterian Church. From 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., art educators will lead children in entertaining yet educational take-home art projects that are connected to space and tie in the locally inspired abstract expressionist movement.

The morning will include a few special guests that are sure to delight little ones. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Space Shuttle ISS Commander Astronaut Frank Culbertson, who has flown three space missions and has logged over 144 days in space as shuttle commander, and ISS Commander Astronaut Leroy Chiao.

"I have never had the opportunity to see the Hamptons in person, but I know the area looks beautiful from space," shared Astronaut Frank Culbertson. "It will be a lot of fun to interact with the local kids and expose them to the excitement of spaceflight, and to learn more about the art, music, and culture of Long Island."

"Art & Astronauts" guests will also have the unique chance to examine the Universe in the Vanderbilt Museum Discovering the Universe Mobile Classroom.

Proceeds from the morning will benefit Wounded Warrior Project, Springs Food Pantry and Higher Orbits. "Higher Orbits is thrilled to be part of The East End Music & Arts Festival," said Michelle Lucas, Founder & President of Higher Orbits. "We look forward to not only engaging with many kids of all ages at the "Art & Astronauts" event, but also creating new collaborations that will help bring space-inspired STEAM programs to The Hamptons in the future."

Community Center at the Springs Community Presbyterian Church is located at 5 Old Stone Highway in East Hampton. For more information, visit theeastendmusicandartsfestival.com.
