Batesville’s SpringFest is expanding to include art and crafts this year, according to Colleen Clark, manager of Batesville’s Main Street program, organizer of the festival, to be held May 19-20.
Vendors of hand-made art are invited to apply to display and sell their work
at the festival on Saturday, May 20.
“We are eager to enlarge the arts and crafts category with artisans sharing their diverse styles and creativity,? arts and crafts vendor chair Sue Womble said.
Art must be created by hand either partially or totally, she said.
Also eligible to be sold at SpringFest are antiques, live potted plants and collectibles.
Vendors can call the Batesville Main Street office at 662-563-3126 for information and applications.
Batesville SpringFest is in its 19th year, offering two days of free musical concerts in Downtown Batesville, with a carnival, a variety of foods for sale, and, this year, art. The musical headliner for this year’s festival is country artist William Michael Morgan, who will perform Saturday night.
