Mad Hatter's Arts Festival, Aug. 11, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Are you mad about art? We are all mad about art in Jackson Square, Oak Ridge! So surround yourself in art, be the art, and support the arts! Vendors will be set up in the square providing the public with an opportunity to purchase artwork, crafts, repurposed items, meet authors or view the artists in action. There will be a wonderland of interactive art stations and kids' activities. Grab a friend and come dressed as your favorite masterpiece or artist. Design your own Mad Hatter’s hat and wear it around the Square. Watch and listen as poets, songwriters, dance and drama troupes perform! Festival is rain or shine!
