Midway, GA – Enjoy a day at the 7th Midway Arts Festival on Saturday, April 28, from 10:00 A.M. – 5:00 PM at the Midway Historical District.

Amidst ancient live oaks dripping with Spanish moss and the historical district dotted with fragrant azaleas, it’s the perfect setting to meet local artists, crafters and authors during the Saturday arts festival. Enjoy BBQ and local musicians. Take the time to visit the Midway Museum and the Historical Midway Church and Cemetery. It’s a great time to step back into the past, to unwind, and to savor the history and coastal beauty surrounding the Midway Historical District.

It’s the ideal time to pick up gifts for Mother’s Day, graduation and for you. Select from unique items such as watercolors, pottery, wind chimes, wood-working, jewelry, and more from area artists and craftsman.

Meet area authors and get a signed book on a variety of topics. Stop by and chat with Patricia Barefoot (Falling for Coastal Magic), Pat Branning (Shrimp, Collards & Grits), Debra Ayers Brown (Chicken Soup for the Soul Messages from Heaven, a new national best seller), Meredith Devendorf (Images of America: Liberty County; Sauce and Sass cookbook), Harry Rubin (Sunken Treasure), Buddy Sullivan (Early Days on the Georgia Tidewater), Vic Waters (Hogan’s Boat), Henrietta Weaver (cookbook author seen on popular Food Network shows including Paula Deen’s “Paula’s Party), DR Willis (Lonely Deceptions), and Dr. Richard Wright (Stop the Church’s Revolving Doors: Building Relationships with Church Members), Cornelia Bailey (God, Dr. Buzzard & the Bolito Man) These are just a sampling of the diverse book titles of our local authors. Visit all the authors and qualify to win a book gift basket.

On Saturday, April 28, shop for arts, crafts, and books. Enjoy the music. Walk the same grounds of the Puritans who sailed on the Mary and John in 1630 and landed in Massachusetts, and moved to Midway in 1752 where they prospered as large coastal plantation owners. Tour the Midway Museum and the Midway Church & Cemetery. Make a day of it at the 7th Midway Arts Festival in the Historic Midway District. Contact the Midway Museum at 912-884-5837 for more information.
