Art Sunday set for Scottsboro’s King Caldwell Park

SCOTTSBORO — More than 80 artisans and craftsmen will make their way to Scottsboro to participate in a juried show and offer their artworks and crafts for sale when the Scottsboro Three Arts Club holds its annual Art Sunday event the first Sunday in September.

Along with arts and crafts, the event offers musical entertainment, children’s activities, photography contests and food and beverage vendors. This year will be the 50th annual event.

Set for Sept. 3 in King Caldwell Park, Art Sunday features nationally recognized artists and emerging, local creators from across northern Alabama and southern Tennessee. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to shop the work of 80-plus artists and makers from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The art exhibition is held rain or shine.

In conjunction with the festival, a photography contest is offered for aspiring amateur photographers. All entries receive free admission to the festival plus each entry will be entered for a chance to win an iPad. First place winners of each youth age division will receive a digital camera. Adult winners will receive a Walmart gift card. Prizes will be awarded at Art Sunday at 3 p.m.

Contestants who wish to enter the photography contest will need to submit an 8×10 photo of a person, place or thing with a completed entry form and a $5 entry fee. Submissions can be dropped off at Scottsboro or Jackson County Board of Education or brought to the cabin located in King Caldwell Park between 9 and 11 a.m. the day of the festival.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary, the vendor fee for artists and craftsmen is $50 before Aug. 25. Registration completed after Aug. 25 will be $100 per vendor. To register, send an email to [email protected].
