Arts 'Round the Square is Saturday, September 23! Don't miss this wonderful annual event.
Every year in September the lawn of the Henry County, Tennessee courthouse comes to life! Artists from across the region and across the nation come together at what has become a much anticipated event on the calendar here in Paris. What a wonderful day to spend your Saturday!
Arts 'Round the Square is a vibrant art show featuring visual artists in many different mediums, from sculpture and pottery to watercolors and acrylics to jewelry, wood and fiber arts. Artists can be seen practicing their artistic talents before your very eyes as their works will be displayed for competition in several different media categories. Start your Christmas shopping with our unique vendors, featuring handmade jewelry, beautiful yard art, gorgeous pottery, paintings in a wide variety of sizes and genres, and so much more.
Performances throughout the day include:
- Jamaica Me Happy Steel Drum Band from UT Martin
- Scott Myatt & Steve Short
- Josh McKee
- The Old 23rd District
- Performances from Dancing Generation Studio and KPAC Young Artists
There will be a Kids' Zone for the young ones to explore art in a fun environment, and we will have an area where you can take part in Paris Rocks! by creating your own piece of artwork for the community.
Don't forget food! Perry's BBQ will be selling their delicious food, Trinity UMC Men will be cooking ribeye sandwiches, FUMC Youth will have popcorn and sno-cones for you to snack on, and we will welcome a new food truck this year, Fire & Ice! Come hungry.
So join us on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm for Arts 'Round the Square!
