DeSoto State Park is hosting its annual Creative Spirit Market this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
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 and folk art, premium hand-crafted goods, live acoustic music, as well as interactive kid's art area. 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 and 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!
