Downtown Waycross is about to celebrate the second annual Okee Arts fest. “We are so excited to bring an art celebration to our community,” Executive Director Elizabeth Simpson said.
The Okee Art Fest will take place on Pendleton Street in front of City Hall Saturday, September 22nd from 9 AM – 2 PM. Local vendors, artists, crafters, food, and more will be available.
“Families can fill the street with chalk art, hear great local music, support the Golden Gator Band, and even make their own splatter art masterpieces.” Simpson said. Admission is free to the festival and guests are encouraged to explore the children’s art displayed in local businesses from the Summer Art Camp and engage in art activities for the whole family.
This is the second annual Okee Arts Fest and will be held from 9:00 – 2:00 on September 22, at the City Hall, Downtown Waycross. Our Festival is all about celebrating the different and numerous artists we have in the Okefenokee area. We invite everyone to come see what the artists, sculptures, quilters, etc. are making. Many will be set up to showcase their work and you might see some working on a project. We will have food vendors and crafts vendors on site for your browsing pleasure. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
Vendor spaces will be $30 for non-members and $20 for members of the OHC. Donations will be accepted to help benefit the art edu action programs in our region.
