Since its beginning in 1998, Southland Jubilee has been downtown Greensboro's premier event, which has developed a reputation across the region as a quality heritage arts festival packed with arts and crafts, classic car show, food and children’s activities. Southland Jubilee is excited to welcome many new and returning vendors to this year’s festival.
“The festival has never sold out like this before,” said Kendrick Harris, Southland Jubilee Chair. “We received double the amount of applications than we have in the past and I’m excited to announce that the vendor spaces are completely full. New this year, there will be arts and craft vendors in Festival Hall.”
At this year’s festival, Southland Jubilee is pleased to present a wide array of vendors where visitors can roam up and down North and South Main Street and find handmade fashion and freshwater cultured pearl jewelry, hand built and wheel thrown ceramic pottery, candles from recycled wine bottles made with all natural soy wax, stylish pet accessories for your favorite hound and feline, monogrammed gifts and accessories, homemade soaps and bees wax lip balm, demonstrations of crocheted headwear and accessories, a plant sale grown by Greene County High School plant science students, sample homemade pepper and mustard sauces, handcrafted authentic English toffee, red velvet funnel cakes, fried Oreos, snow creams, frozen drinks, smoked barbeque and even adopt a furry friend from the local animal shelters and humane societies.
Vendors will line North and South Main Streets and Festival Hall will also house several vendors and a Native American performance throughout the day.
In addition to the handmade arts and craft vendors, the younger attendees will be delighted with the Children’s Area. The area will include a rock-climbing wall, spider jump, bounce houses and crafts of sand art and face painting.
Whether it is the live performances, arts and crafts, classic cars, heritage demonstrations, children's activities, your favorite festival foods or agricultural and antique tractor exhibits, attendees will find old favorites and should expect a few new surprises at this award winning festival.
