Small arts event quite an affair for Perry

May 8, 2013 

Saturday’s Affair on the Square in Perry will feature a variety of arts and crafts vendors from the area in one place, the city’s historic courthouse square.

“What we’ve done is select artists from Middle Georgia to come in as vendors to sell their arts and crafts,” said Jonathan Smith, economic development technician for the city of Perry.

In addition to artists, some of the vendors include a soap maker, wood carver, knitter and an urban street artist.

Beer and wine will be available for sale at the event, with open containers being allowed for the first time in Perry, Smith said. No food vendors will be at the Affair on the Square, but some of the vendors will provide music. Downtown restaurants will be open as usual.

“We hope to have a lot of support from the city,” Smith said. “We hope that everyone will come out and it will be a complete success.”
