If you live in an apartment in West Columbia, SC head to the first annual Festival of the Arts this weekend. Decorate your apartment with local artwork, or just gain an appreciation of the area through our artists. The city of Cayce this weekend will host a first-of-its-kind festival organized by residents who want to expose more people to the arts and support local nonprofits.
The 2015 Cayce Festival of the Arts is happening from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Visitors will get the chance to enjoy work from crafters, authors and artists who hail primarily from South Carolina.
Admission is free!
“It is our goal that the festival will grow into an annual event that is anticipated within the community,” said Aubrey Shaw of the Cayce Avenues Neighborhood Association.
Vendors including John and Venetia Sharpe of Sharpe Creations in Cayce and Renee L’Ecuyer of L’Ecuyer’s Gourmet will be at the festival talking about their techniques and recipes. Several South Carolina authors including Swansea writer Sandra Pound also are signed up to attend and discuss their latest releases.
“Authors and writers are a unique inclusion in this type of festival,” Shaw said.
