Stray at Home is an art and music festival that started in 2012 in Jackson, MS. Vendors travel from all over to sell their handmade goods and original furniture and artwork. Each show is juried to feature a wide array of established and emergent designers from Mississippi and the larger southern region.
We are super excited to be a sponsor for this event, and contribute to the growing creative culture in Mississippi. Stray at Home – Jackson offers a chance for art and craft enthusiasts, designers, bloggers, music lovers and taste makers to come together to “get lost in” streets brimming with unique artistic expression, fine craftsmanship, and the sounds of talented musicians. This year’s festival will be on Saturday, May 9th 2015 in Smith Park and surrounding streets. There will be arts and crafts for sale, local food and beverage vendors, and live music ranging from the Indie-Alternative to Blues-Rockabilly and Americana. We hope you’ll come “stray” with us in Smith Park on May 9th, 2015!
Proceeds from the festival will go towards the production of the festival and to The Museum to Market Trail. The Museum to Market Trail will feature almost 5 miles of protected, paved trail for use by pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles. While construction of the trail is funded through state and federal transportation grants, this festival will raise funds for improvements like water fountains, benches, mile markers, lighting, directional signs, and other amenities.
