Sawdust Winter Family Art Festival

We love the  Sawdust Festival and their Winter Family Art Festival starts this Saturday November 21st.  The festival grounds will be transformed into a winter wonderland where exhibitors create, display and sell original creations.

You can oarticipate in a 60-90 art or craft class with the Winter Art Series (Classes included painting & wreath making). They also will offer FREE to  low-cost art projects for the kiddos. When I mean low cost- I’m talking about $1 art projects that your kiddos will love!

There will also be  demonstrations by artists  which include glass-blowing, holiday entertainment, community performances, four outdoor cafés, and visits with Santa!New this year will be a small farm animal petting zoo presented by Zoomars, where guests can get up close and personal with their favorite furry friend.
