“This is one of the biggest shows yet,” said Ashley Alonso, event coordinator. With 120 vendors, many of them being new this year, you will definitely want to mark your calendar. Shakerag Arts & Crafts Festival is known for its handmade arts, crafts, and food. We have a variety of vendors, from all over Georgia and the south, with unique items for sale including pottery, paintings, ceramics, florals, pet items, jewelry, etc. There is a children’s area that will feature a bounce house, games, pony rides and a craft station. Fees for these activities are minimal.

In conjunction with the show this year the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater is sponsoring the Shakerag Bluegrass Festival.
