Are you ready? We are !
It was estimated that 5,000 to 7,000 art lovers perused the fine arts, listened
to great music, and enjoyed a cornucopia of food last year. PACA, Pickens Arts
and Cultural Alliance organized the creation of the “World’s Largest Kudzu
basket.” We are hoping that the basket will make an encore appearance this
Last year creative chalk drawings graced the street. The Tater
Patch players hit the pavement with a flash mob and the Performing Arts Academy
performed as well. On Saturday, the south end of Main Street hosted the Art of
the Auto. Antique cars of all kinds were on display.
On Sunday on south Main the fire trucks and big rig semi-trucks found kids, young and old, enjoying
a seat and great photo op at the wheel.
If you missed this event last year, you have another chance. We will be having variations of all last year’s
activities this weekend. Saturday hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday
will be 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. There is no cost to join in the fun.
We hope that you will come support the efforts of the artists and the City of
Jasper. We have a growing art community that is an amazing asset. Hope to see
