Vendors sought for ArtiGras 2019
Posted: Jan 04, 2019
Calling all musicians, dancers, artists, vendors, characters, bicyclists, animal-lovers, folks in costume, and individual volunteers or groups: we need YOU in ArtiGras 2019 on Saturday, February 16th, 2-10 pm, at Railroad Square Art Park in Tallahassee. It is similar to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but celebrates the unique creative expressions of Tallahassee folks. It is comprised of kids’ activities, displays, vendors, a parade, a panel discussion, and stage performances by Creole and Zydeco bands. Led by a brass band, the parade at 4 pm is open to all, and may include groups and individuals who have created their own masks, costumes or small floats, decorated their cars, or dressed up their dogs (prizes awarded). A family festival, ArtiGras makes a special effort to educate students about the Creole cultures of the South that have Mardi Gras traditions, including New Orleans and S.W. Louisiana, Mobile, and Apalachicola, Florida. All performers, vendors and volunteers may register on line, on the website, www.crossculturalcoalition.org.
