The 10th Annual Midway Arts Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 25, in the Midway Historic District on Highway 17 South and Martin Road.
The event is hosted by the Midway Museum, and admission and parking are free and open to the public. Event-goers can select from unique items such as watercolors, pottery, wind chimes, woodworking and jewelry from area artists, craftsman and food vendors. They can also enjoy local authors and musicians as they explore the grounds of the museum and church.
There are currently 36 vendors signed up. Booth rentals are available for artists, authors, crafters and food vendors for a fee of $35, which will be made as a donation to the museum. Sponsorship opportunities are available as well. Space is limited. Booth applications must be submitted by April 20.
“The festival began because Tina Scott from the Midway Gallery showcased local vendors on consignment and wanted to allow local artists a place to showcase their work in a bigger public venue,” Midway Museum Executive Director Diane Kroell said. “For the past three years, the Midway Museum has sponsored this event as a fundraiser and community activity. We are happy to have local visual artists, food vendors and musicians to display their wares and crafts.”
The Midway Museum anticipates about 200-300 event-goers at the Midway Arts Festival. Booths will be located on the grounds beside the Midway Church and Museum under the live oak trees.
