Union County Weekly

WAXHAW – Hundreds of people took part in Waxhaw Art Kaleidoscope in downtown Waxhaw on Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17.

This event has replaced the former Spring Fest by adding an artistic flair to pay tribute to the growing artistic community in Waxhaw and Union County.

Forty-five artists from painters to sculptures and wood workers set up booths and displayed their artwork to patrons. Over fifty crafters sold wreaths, jewelry, hand bags, crocheted dolls and handcrafted wooden furniture.

The kids also had an entertainment oasis shaded by oak trees at the Kids Zone on the green space at Waxhaw United Methodist Church. Children bounced from one bounce house to the next, suited up for laser tag and fed pigs, donkeys, llamas and goats at the petting zoo.

Main Street hosted entertainment and concessions for both adults and children with face painting and magic tricks from Arty the Clown, as well as a beer garden and several rock and blues bands.

From grandmothers to babies, the whole community came out to participate in Waxhaw Art Kaleidoscope. Many also didn’t leave without first enjoying some festival favorites – red velvet funnel cakes and fresh squeezed lemonade.

The following photos were taken by Union County Weekly reporter Crystal O’Gorman.
