The Artist Village will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. 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 our giant chalk painting masterpiece behind the Pratt Park pavilion and featured artists, Carole Bandy Carson and Charlie “Tin Man” Lucas, will work with festival-goers on a community art project. 

Entertainment throughout the daytime includes Todd Fulmer and Lacy Lynn, Wesley Dennis, the Alex Walker Band, and more at the Pratt Park Amphitheater stage. Although the Artist Village will close at 5:00 p.m., the entertainment stage will stay active until 9:00 p.m. with performances by the John Bull Band at 5:30 p.m. and Al Jahara and the Good Vibez at 7:00 p.m. Food trucks and games for the family will be open and available until 9:00 p.m. as well.
