Artisans' Village, a juried fine arts and crafts show
Almost 150 Artists and Fine Craftsmen from all over the Southeast compete for acceptance into the Festival, where they can present (and sell) their hand-made art. Known for quality and craftsmanship, the Artisans' Village is home to a variety of artistic categories, medium, and styles, including painting, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, photography, woodworking, basketry, and other traditional fine arts and crafts, such as gourds, fiber, and glass. Together, they form an incredible array of fine arts and crafts guaranteed to provide a day of artistic inspiration, as well as a wonderful shopping experience.
Much of the Artisan Village will be located along University Avenue, as previous years, but some sections are moving to accommodate increasing crowds.
Each year awards are given in recognition of outstanding art and craft. These include a Best of Show, Best of Category (painting, sculpture, photography & graphics, clay, jewelry, and traditional crafts), and Spirit Award.
