The University Area Community Development Corporation will host its fourth annual art festival, Remixed: Prodigy Urban Arts Jam, from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday at the University Mall located at 2200 E Fowler Ave.

The free event aims to bring people together in celebration of the Prodigy Cultural Arts Program's contribution to the urban arts.

New attractions include a freestyle rap competition, a DJ scratch demonstration, a live, interactive graffiti exhibit and an urban wear fashion show.

But the highlight will be the annual Turn Up V Dance Battle, where local children and youth will compete in a dance competition for prizes.

Trophies will be awarded in the following categories: individual all styles, dance and step choreo challenge, freestyle rap monster, funky fresh dressed and cypher king & queen.

Children and families are also invited to develop free arts and crafts creations or play in the kids game alley.

Under MC Maxon Victor, the afternoon will kick off with the Cypher exhibition, an open dance session at 12:30 p.m.

The urban fashion show will begin at 1:15 p.m. followed by the DJ scratch demonstration at 1:30 p.m., the freestyle competition at 1:45 p.m. and the dance battle, the grand finale, will take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The University Area CDC provides support for thousands of Tampa residents through youth programs such as this as well as adult education and resource assistance.
