MILTON, Ga., Sept. 14, 2011 - It's time again to stroll through beautiful, historic Crabapple on a cool fall day, taking in the wares of more than 100 antique dealers and juried artists from six states.
We're talking of course about the venerable Crossroads at Crabapple Antiques and Art Festival, held Saturday, Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in historic downtown Crabapple.
A tradition since 1969, this one day only, rain or shine, outdoor festival features thousands of antiques, accessories, and unique pieces of art in all mediums.
This festival benefits the Crabapple Community Association, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the USA and many other local non-profit organizations. Parking and admission are free, and there will be a trolley available from nearby lots. Handicap parking is accessible from the City of Alpharetta Crabapple Government Center.
"We get quite a crowd, so shoppers need to come early for the best buys," said festival organizer Sally Rich-Kolb. "We have thousands of antiques - from 19th century American Country furniture, to vintage and 'shabby chic' finds - and unique pieces of art in virtually all mediums - oils, photography, jewelry, textiles, glass, wood turnings and so much more."
Included in the festival are roaming musicians, a varied menu of food items, trolley rides and children's activities from 2 to 4 p.m.
Please note, the City of Milton is a presenting sponsor of this event. It is not a city-run special event.
