Some examples of different mediums from past festivals include paintings, photography, handmade clothing, home goods, jewelry and more. Artists will receive a 10x10 space for $50, where each artist can sell pieces to those attending the festival. Artists will need to provide tables, tents and chairs, but will receive complementary snacks and drinks. With record-breaking attendence of 7,200 people in 2014, TTS expects an even larger crowd in 2015.
The Druid City Arts Festival’s goal is to provide a quality arts festival, which strengthens Tuscaloosa as a destination market for the arts circuit, while also educating, engaging and inspiring both youth and adults about the arts and humanities within the Tuscaloosa community. The festival will be held in conjunction with the Tour de Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s premiere bicycle race with a criterium located in downtown Tuscaloosa.
