Riverview Arts and Crafts Festival

Just drive through the gate, and follow the red dirt road
to the Riverview Arts and Crafts Festival coming up Saturday, May 3.

Sponsored by the Riverview Neighborhood Association, the first annual festival will be held at Riverside Park on the banks of the Alabama River. There will be live music, food, art, crafts and sing-a-longs from 9 a.m. til 5 p.m.

Booths already include local folks, several from Prattville, one from Fairhope and basket makers.Twenty-five booths are sponsored by Arts Revive, and artist Charlie "Tin Man" Lucas will design the official T-Shirt. The music mix includes country, gospel, school choirs and blues. A clothesline art show will feature designs of a "Dream Riverview Cottage" by fourth graders from all over Selma. So, if you happen to see kids around the neighborhood looking at the houses, they are probably just getting ideas for their projects!

Got an art or craft to sell?
Booth rentals are only $25.
Got a food venue? Rental is just $75.

For more info, call 334-875-4348 or email rc50@hotmail.com.
Rentals are raised for booths waiting to register on the day of the event.
So you might as well just go ahead and register.
Specify arts, crafts or food, and send your name, address, phone number, types of items and email address (along with a check or money order) to Riverview Neighborhood Association, P.O. Box 1314, Selma, AL. 36702.

The festival is a benefit for the Riverview Neighborhood Association, which aims to improve the area. Home to lots of historic early 1900's houses, Riverview is a cottage community. Some of the homes are built along the river bank close to downtown.

What a great idea for a neighborhood to share. We need to keep our historic areas vital.
