Held annually on the second Saturday in June.

This fabulous arts and fine crafts festival takes place from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Come and see the best artists and crafters as they line our historic streets with beautiful fine art and handmade crafts.  The show, which is a juried craft show, represents some of the finest crafters in the Southeast.  Pottery, jewelry, paintings, stained glass, fiber, carvings, photography, sculpture and metal work are just a few of the crafts represented at this annual event.  The festival features  live, local entertainment at the Harry C. Pugliese “Pug” Pavilion throughout the day. 

To keep things safe, we ask that event goers abide by the following: no pets, bicycles or skateboards.  Streets are closed to vehicular traffic. As an extra treat, leave the parking to us! There will be a park and ride shuttle from Ward Farm, located behind the Hampton Inn.

We are seeking fine arts and crafts vendors along with food vendors for the festival to be held on June 8, 2024.
