The Annual Crosstie Arts and Jazz Festival, a juried fine arts show, will feature hundreds of exhibitors displaying paintings, sculpture, pottery, fabric and paper designs, hand-made furniture and jewelry.
High quality handcrafts will be offered in a marketplace setting. Road races for young and old, an extensive area just for children, live entertainment, a delicious variety of regional foods, and friendly people combine to make a most enjoyable day.
Greetings from the Mississippi Delta! On behalf of the Crosstie Arts Council, I would like to personally invite you to participate in the Crosstie Arts & Jazz Festival this year. Each year, we transform the Bolivar County Courthouse lawn into a juried fine arts show featuring hundreds of exhibitors displaying paintings, sculpture, pottery, fabric and paper designs, hand-made furniture, jewelry, and much more. With a multitude of activities and live music surrounding the art, Crosstie pulls in hundreds of visitors from Cleveland and the surrounding areas. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I hope to see you in April!
For exhibitor questions or information, please contact Jordan Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
