MIXED MEDIA | 2020 FEATURED ARTIST

Some of America’s most talented artists converge on Ridgeland for this juried art festival that includes clay, drawing/pastels, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media 2D and 3D, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and wood. The free event provides art enthusiasts and shoppers the opportunity to interact with the artists personally.

Artisans from the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi will be on hand demonstrating their various crafts and they’ll be on hand at the Children’s Creative Craft Corner to help your budding artist create their own “make and take” piece of art.

New this year is Paws on Palates. All Art, Wine & Wheels events are dog-friendly and we hope you stop by the pet green space during the Fine Arts Festival to create a piece of artwork for your pup to take home!

Festival attendees can enjoy sampling unique wines and beer at the Sante South Sampling Palate. Guests 21 and older can purchase a punch card at the Information Tents located on the festival grounds and take it to the Sampling Kiosk for some fabulous adult beverages. Food trucks will also be at the festival offering some good eats for everyone. Or if you’d rather dine out, Ridgeland is home to many top tier restaurants as well.

Local boutiques and brand name merchants will also have ongoing weekend specials during the festival – there is no shortage of shopping!
