The Texas Avenue Makers Fair returns to the 800 block of historic Texas Avenue in downtown Shreveport this Saturday, April 14, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. In just two short years, the good folks at the Texas Avenue Community Association have established this bi-annual event as one of the most popular art events in Shreveport-Bossier. During the Makers Fair, more than 100 vendors will be selling unique creations ranging from handmade jewelry to musical instruments. Local musicians perform throughout the day, often while roaming through the crowd, and an unpredictable assortment of food vendors turn out to sell breakfast and lunch items. Check out the huge list of vendors for Saturday’s event.
Not only is this a great place to shop for locally-made items, the Makers Fair arguably offers some of the best “people-watching” of any event in S-B. At last year’s events, I saw the following:
–An incredible Michael Jackson impersonator
-A man blowing fire
-A musician wandering the crowd playing a Key-tar while wearing a space helmet
Admission and parking are free, and curbside parking in the neighborhood is abundant. Bring cash for the vendors, as many cannot accept credit cards, or use the on-site ATM.
