This year’s folk art contest will be open to anyone with an original piece of folk art. Artwork should be brought to the market by 10:30 for judging by a panel of local artists at 11:00. The winner will be announced at 11:30. $100 in Main Street Money that can be used at local stores in New Albany will be awarded.
