The festival includes juried original artists and artisans featuring painting, sculpture, wood, glass, jewelers, pottery, mosaics, candles, original clothing, etc.; five stages of live music, dance and performing arts; vendors; children’s carnival, petting zoo, and art classes.
Originally produced, funded and conceptualized by French Smith III it was taken over through legal action by the Old Pecan Street Association in 1997.
