Did you enjoy the Alabama Folk Fair and Craft Show last May? Well you are in for a treat. We are having the 4th Annual Alabama Folk Fair again on May 1 and 2, 2020.    You will be hearing more about it as time goes by, but for now –if you want to be a vendor, you need to get your application in along with a check so that you won’t miss out. Booths will fill quickly.   See our flyer and application form.

 You should check back periodically to find out all the plans for this important event.    It not only offers an opportunity to retain and demonstrate our folk arts and crafts, but also gives financial benefit to this museum. Our Board of Directors works hard to put on this event and see that it is a wonderful success.
