Among the activities that guests can look forward to include shopping with hundreds of juried arts and craft vendors, listening to live music at the Poplar Street Stage, enjoying refreshments at the food court, and even a petting zoo, along with many other family-friendly activities.
Scheduled entertainers include the Loophole Band, Cloggers Unlimited and the Texas 105 Band today, with the John Swat Band, Jeff Jacobs and the Tusk Band taking the stage tomorrow.
Admission to the event is free, and parking is $10. All proceeds benefit the Chappell Hill Historical Society.
