An annual, two-day family event ranging over five blocks in Olde Towne Slidell including Griffith Park at 333 Erlanger Ave. Held from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both days, the festival features vendor booths of antiques, collectibles and arts and crafts, as well as the town's antique shops and great food and live music on three stages.
Shops and galleries in the district carry antique and distressed furniture, stained glass, art, pottery, jewelry, crystal, hand painted porcelain, collectibles, home decor, vintage clothing, and Saints & LSU merchandise. The Olde Towne area is also home to the Slidell Museum, which displays artifacts and historical accounts about the Civil War, and is open during the festivals.
The music lineup will be announced in October.
