DeSoto State Park’s annual Creative Spirit Market is slated for Nov. 13 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The deadline for artists to reserve a spot is Nov. 10.

Adding a new twist to a typical art fair, this event is designed as an open air showcase, with artist demonstrations, locally and regionally created fine & folk art, premium hand-crafted goods and live acoustic music. Shoppers can browse and watch artists in their creative process, listen to music, plus purchase goods from fine and folk artists such as painters, potters, quilters, weavers & basket makers, fabric spinners, culinary artists and craftsmen. Some unique and one-of-a-kind gifts will be available for purchase. Stop by and get some early gift-shopping in!

Dates: November 13 & 14, 2021 (Second weekend of November)

Times: 10:00 am-3:00 pm each day

The market is held near DeSoto State Park’s picnic area across from the Country Story on County Road 89. If the weather is chilly, market-goers can enjoy a blazing fire in the stone fireplace in the CCC pavilion. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the park.

There is limited parking in the picnic area, the tennis court area, and in front of the Country Store.

If parking anywhere in the picnic area, a $2 per vehicle fee applies. There is no fee to attend the open-air market. Rain or shine event. Email Brittney.Hughes@dcnr.alabama.gov for any details.
