Organizers of the second annual Arkansas Made Arkansas Proud Locally Made Market are gearing up for a great event on April 14 at War Memorial Stadium. Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success with more than 100 vendors from across the state selling everything from jewelry to pottery and handcrafted furniture in a lively “craft fair” atmosphere. Shoppers will want to save the date for this curated spring craft show that brings the best artisans, designers and crafters from the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, to the vibrant, bohemian maker culture emerging along Main Street in Little Rock. Vendors will set up beneath rows of pop-up tents on the stadium field to sell wares and greet guests. Attendees can enjoy a day filled with excellent shopping, live demonstrations, kid-friendly activities and refreshments available for purchase. This rain-or-shine event offers a great opportunity for the community to meet artists and makers from around the state in one central location, support them and learn about their unique artistic process and design. Artists and makers still have time to apply to be part of the fun!
Applications will be available Jan. 2. Call Vickie Hart at 501-529-7624 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
