Decatur, Alabama was the site of the annual River Clay Fine Arts Festival which took place September 23rd and 24th. The festival is held the fourth weekend each September on the campus of Decatur’s City Hall. Over 70 talented artists from 9 states exhibited their art and wares, much of it available for sale.
The River Clay Fine Arts Festival
There was something for just about everyone at the River Clay Fine Arts Festival. There were artist demonstrations, student art exhibits, children’s make-and-take art activities, iron work, musical performances, and food trucks. And for those who weren’t feeling particular “artsy,” there were plenty of beautiful creations to simply admire.
