 Pratt Park will be full of with fun for the whole family on April 1 from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.! 

The Artist Village will be packed with local and regional artist vendors featuring a variety of artwork, jewelry, and other objects. A pop-up farmers market will be located within the festival for other Alabama made, Alabama grown specialties, too! Artist and market spots are still available, contact to apply. 

Come early for a special giveaway! Children will be able to work on a variety of free art projects that they can take home and the first 200 children visitors will receive a free bag of art goodies! Children of all ages are welcome to participate in art projects by the Prattauga Art Guild and featured artists, basket weaver Diane Kelly and sculptor Charlie “Tin Man” Lucas, will work with festival-goers on a community art project. 

Entertainment throughout the daytime includes Taylor Bagi, Justin Turberville, the April Pendergrass Band, Alma Brown and the A-1 Gospel Singers, and the Stephanie Pickett Band at the Pratt Park Amphitheater stage. At 3:00 p.m., the Wilson Pickett Jr. Legacy will present a Gospel Hour featuring talented gospel performers including Jalise Wilson, Clark King, the Springfield Male Chorus, Dathan Thigpen, and Justis Powell. Food trucks and games for the family will be open all day. Admission is free!
