The Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum has announced the 2017 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, which will take place August 3 to 6 in Jamestown, NY.
Visitors will be able to explore the life and career of Desi Arnaz through an exhibit and program that can only be seen during the 2017 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival. Both the exhibit and program will tell the story of Arnaz’s journey emigrating from Cuba, and how he ultimately became one of the most influential entertainment moguls in our culture’s history.
On March 2, 1917, the legendary actor, performer, musician, producer, entertainment mogul, innovator, and star: Desi Arnaz (Desiderio Alberto Arnaz y de Acha III), was born in Santiago, Cuba. Not only did Desi Arnaz break barriers on “I Love Lucy,” he also helped pioneer the concept of TV syndication.
The Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum is located at 2 West Third Street, Jamestown, NY.
