A $5 entry will get you 2 raffle tickets, each ticket thereafter will also be $5 each.
More prizes will be announced in the coming days so stay tuned…..
4th Street 8th Annual Arts & Music Festival and Not Yo Mama’s Affairs are hookin’ up. Whaaat? Yes. It’s true! And we hope you’ll join us… Saturday Oct 1, Not Yo Mama’s will be hosting a craft fair at the 8th Annual 4th Street Arts & Music Festival from 12-8pm. This festival is one of the most highly anticipated events during the JC Studio Tour as it brings together all walks of life for the sake of art, and that creativity takes on many forms. In the past, they’ve been known to paint anything walking by, create on-site murals, host some really awesome bands, stage vintage fashion shows and there’s never been a dry keg in the lot. This year, well… they’ve got a few surprises up their sleeve but we’re not obliged to spill it…yet. Last year, NYM hosted a gathering of some of our favorite crafters for an exclusive showing in 4th Street’s outdoor gARTen. This year, we’re back at it and we can’t wait! We’re scooping up some really talented folk and planting them in 10×10 spots. (Come by around noon October 1st to see what blooms) Think you want to be a vendor at this event? Well, then, open this link in a new window, fill out the form and hand it over to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be aware, though, that space is EXTREMELY limited. We’re accepting 25 folks – at most – to show their works to thousands (and hopefully make a couple new friends. Everyone could use a new friend or two…)
