Artisan / Craftsmen / Exhibitors & Food Vendors – November 23rd

Event Description: The Brunswick Arts Council and the City of Southport, NC are teamed up to once again offer a special day of
cultural events featuring juried artisans, craftsmen, exhibitors and performing artists – a day of enrichment and fun! We
honored Charles Dickens on the 200th anniversary of his birth in 2012 and a tradition was born. The Brunswick Arts council is a
not for profit, tax deductible organization with a mission to inspire and promote appreciation for a broad range of cultural
interests that benefit Brunswick County students, artists and arts-related organizations. Proceeds for this event are used to
support the advancement of arts and culture in schools and the community through funding of programs and events.

We are hoping to transform the streets of Southport into everything Dickens. There will be singing groups, juried artists and
specialty craftsmen; a gingerbread village, a Christmas tree and costume contest; and, of course, FOOD and FROTH. On display
will be the new 48’ touring train exhibit from the Wilmington Train Museum and the very recent award winning exhibit
“Fantasy under the Sea” by The Wood-turners. The popular high teas will again be served locally! Merchants and Restaurants
in Southport will be poised for the increased activity that the festival brings their way. Trolley rides and fun for all ages! The
event will end with “A Tribute to Charles Dickens Candlelight Ceremony and ringing and singing in the holidays!”
