19th Annual Port Gibson Heritage Festival   

Mar/26/2011 - Mar/26/2011
Location: Downtown Port Gibson

The 19th Annual Port Gibson Heritage Festival takes place in historical downtown Port Gibson on Saturday, March 26, 2011. For the ninth consecutive year, juried artists and craftsmen are invited to participate in the Artists' Alley section of the festival.

Artists' Alley features booths with original handmade art and craft items and is set up in an area separate from the "resale" vendors. Members of the Mississippi Craftsmen's Guild, the Louisiana Craftsmen's Guild, or any other recognized professional art or craft promotional organizations qualify for free booth rent, a $100 value.

Additionally, a stipend will be paid to all qualified artists to help defray their expenses. We also offer limited assistance to non-affiliated, non-juried artists and craftsmen of note.

The 2011 festival holds promise to be one of the largest ever with request for booth spaces coming in from as far away as Florida.

Headliner musical entertainment will be on stage all day. Artists' Alley participants should plan on being set up by 9:00 a.m. and continue to man your booth until 4:30 p.m. Artists will be able to drive to their booth location, unload and then park in a designated lot close by. You won't have to carry your booth all over creation to set up.

For this year's festival, we have weavers from the Weaver's Guild of Mississippi, several wood turners from the Craftsmen's Guild, potters and stained glass artisans from the Guild. Additionally, several visual artists who work in the photo and print media will join us for the day.

To secure your spot in Artists' Alley call or email Ken McLemore at 601-415-7394 or kmclemo@bellsouth.net. We'll see you there.
