The Artist’s Market
The popular Artist’s Market is the centerpiece of Canton Festival of the Arts showcasing more than 50 local and national artists. Visitors will find handcrafted works of art that include paintings, jewelry, pottery, woodworking, glass, sculptures, textile at a variety of price points and styles for purchase. All artists will be onsite to share inspiring stories and some will even demonstrate their craft.
Lots of kid-sized fun is planned during the weekend. The Kid’s Zone will offer plenty of free make and take art stations and activities designed for the little ones. Don’t miss the opportunity to bounce and slide in the inflatable area (small fee to participate).
Back by popular demand is the Serenity Garden designed to enhance the art of gardening and healthy living. Guests will find farm-like
items, plants, jams, jellies, soaps, and lotions. The beekeeper will be on hand to answer questions and to share their bee hives and the
importance of bees in our communities.
