One Step Beyond, a nonprofit that provides educational, vocational, recreation and performing arts programs for adults who have intellectual disabilities, will host its 2023 Showcase Festival in Glendale.
The festival will feature a vintage-themed carnival with games, fun activities, raffles and interactive art as well as an outdoor picnic catered by food trucks and the OSBI Culinary Program.
The free event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, May 7 at Heroes Regional Park, 6101 N. 83rd Ave., Glendale.
“Our Showcases which highlight our participants hard work and performances are the highlight of the year,” CEO Madison Blanton shared in a news release. “This year, in honor of One Step Beyond’s 20th anniversary, we decided to combine our recitals, talent shows, adaptive plays, musical performances and art displays with a community festival. The participants have been working hard and are super excited about sharing their talents and abilities with the Valley community.”
The community is invited to join more than 300 One Step Beyond participants, family members, staff and community partners to celebrate the year’s accomplishments.
One Step Beyond serves more than 500 Arizona families, has an annual operating budget of $12 million, and is staffed by over 170 employees. There is a Glendale campus at 7200 W. Bell Road.
