What a day! Dayton's first Redbud Spring Arts and Crafts Festival, held on April 27th, drew many hundreds of visitors to the Artisans Courtyard as well as a network of special attractions across the community.
Highlights of the day included horse-drawn wagon rides, live performances by Monacan Indian tribe members, John Grogg's demonstration of farrier/horseshoeing techniques, family arts activities including facepainting and a new mural project, and works of arts and crafts by more than 90 vendors. Demonstrations of the Courtyard's new 3D printer and a new "Daytonwood" green screen studio were among the attractions of the day.
Given the response, it's looking like a new Dayton arts and craft festival tradition has been born!
