Call to Artists for 70th North Carolina Rhododendron Festival Craft Fair
You might remember that the Bakersville Creek Walk Arts Festival was combined with the Rhododendron Festival last year. The board of the Creek Walk Festival has decided that that event will not continue. (You can read the Creek Walk Festival announcement about their decision here.) The Rhododendron Festival is continuing and also features a craft fair. It will take place Saturday, June 18th, in Bakersville, North Carolina. Here's the information for artists from the festival website:
We invite all local & regional artists, craftspeople, food vendors, and other commercial vendors to apply for space at the NC Rhododendron Festival Craft Fair, held along the Creek Walk on Saturday, June 18th, 10am to 5pm.
