The event features some of the best artisans in the Southeast to include: pottery, wreaths, door hangers, flowers, wood turned bowls, clothing, birdhouses, honey, jewelry, soap, brooms, metal art, glass art, freshly ground cornmeal and grits, and much, much more.

Live music and the best pulled pork in the Southeast as well as ribs, hamburgers, brats, and chicken wings.

On Saturday, children 12 and under are invited to wear costumes, and plan to trick or treat.  On Sunday at 4 p.m.  Saint Bernard Prep will give away cash prizes totaling over $12,000! Bring the entire family for a weekend of fun!  Hours for the event are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
