Get ready for the 11th Annual Fountain City Arts Festival to be held on Saturday, April 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This festival will be held at “America’s Favorite Park,” Pratt Park in Downtown Prattville, Alabama.

This fine arts festival features an Artist Village with a variety of artists and fine crafters exhibiting hand crafted and custom designed items from fine art paintings to wood carvings, photography, clay sculpture, silk painting, handmade soap, and many more. A Children’s Creative Canopy sponsored by the Prattauga Art Guild will have free hands-on art projects for children with some make-it and take-it projects and collaborative works as well. There will be painting under the live oak in the Artist Village for children and adults, with artwork created there to be exhibited in venues throughout Prattville. Award winning, internationally recognized artists will exhibit their creations, with some of their works for sale. A Traditional Crafts area will feature basket weaving, gemstone polishing, and more, by artists who are experts in their craft and want to keep the traditions alive for generations to come.

We will have entertainment by Prattville Pops, Community Chorus and the Way Off Broadway Theatre, as well as other local and regional entertainers.

The smells of fresh grilled burgers and kettle corn will entice festival goers to visit the food vendor area for hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken wraps, barbeque, and much more!

In addition to the artwork and creativity, children can enjoy inflatables and the children’s play area of the park. Pratt Park has beautiful tree lined walkways and a pond with ducks and other water fowl to enjoy or photograph and is the perfect place to spend a day with your family.

Admission to this family event is free and it is open to the public. For more information about the Fountain City Arts Festival, contact the Special Events office at 334/595-0854.
