Pike Road Holds 47th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair


By Alabama News Network

Hundreds of people are in Pike Road Saturday for the annual arts and crafts fair.

This is the 47th year for that fair. This year, more than 250 artists and crafts vendors were there. You could buy anything from homemade furniture to jewelry, and even food. Barbecue and homemade sweets were on sale.

The fair is held at the historic marks house in Pike Road, which dates back to 1825. Organizers say it's a tradition the community looked forward to every year.

"We've been doing this 47 years, and we really hope to make it to 50. It's great to see this kind of response from the people of Montgomery County and the surrounding counties. It's wonderful," said fair co-chair Julie Livingston.

It cost $5 to get in, but that money is for a good cause. It goes directly towards the upkeep of the Marks House, support of the Pike Road Fire Department and scholarships in local schools.
