“It’s all about the children!” That’s what Chatham County’s own internationally-beloved Outsider Folk Artist Clyde Jones has to say about our annual ClydeFEST kids’ arts festival.
Almost 2,000 kids and kids-at-heart come out for this one-day-antidote to the smartphone stare. You know that stare. That blank, wide-eyed look. When they don’t hear you. Or see you. And they might as well be on another planet.
ClydeFEST encourages us all to put down the technology for the day and get creative.
Yep, ClydeFEST is an outdoor children’s arts festival honoring and encouraging creativity in Chatham County. An utterly unique event designed especially for children 10 years of age and under, ClydeFEST features hand-on arts activities, original old-world carnival games, live music and storytelling, live turtles, food trucks, and an instrument petting zoo.
And of course, there’s a chance you might win your very own Clyde critter—or bid on the one Clyde will make right in front of our eyes. Clyde doesn’t sell his critters anywhere, so taking one home with you is a big deal.
ClydeFEST is a Chatham County treasure, and we invite you to be part of it this year.
