Enjoy Vestival Saturday, May 11

Posted: 05/06/2013
The 13th Annual Vestival - South Knoxville's Art & Heritage Festival will be held Saturday, May 11 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the historic Candoro Marble Company located at 681 Maryville, Pike.

Admission is free and open to the public. A $5 per person donation is requested to support the Candoro Arts and Heritage Center.

The festival will memorialize the late Knoxville architect and preservationist Charles B. Richmond, who co-founded the non-profit Candoro Arts and Heritage Center and served as its president and champion.

As Vestival tradition holds, the festival begins at 11 a.m. with a casual Mother's Day brunch, which is free for mothers. Visitors can browse the wares of local arts and crafts artists, community groups and select from a variety of food choices. There is also a tent for children's activities.

Old-fashioned cake walks, accompanied by live music, take place throughout the day. Participants pay $1 each to walk the walk for their chance to win a cake donated by one of our community's generous bakeries.
