Second Annual Fresh Air Festival set Saturday

Upper Cumberland Arts Alliance invites you to The Second Annual Fresh Air Festival set for Saturday, June 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in historic Granville located in Jackson County. 

This festival brings together “plein air” painters (artists who paint from life in the outdoors or “open air”) and fine crafts. You can watch artists painting in their own painting style, and crafters showing their own techniques of accomplishment. 

This festival takes place at the scenic and pastoral site of Veterans Park on Cordell Hull Lake in Granville, as it did last year. Granville, a small town undergoing revitalization, has proven to be a unique place; the town can take you back to yesteryear, and you can see art representing the Upper Cumberland area of Tennessee both at the festival and upstairs in the Sutton General Store.

Enjoy the music in this pristine park by Bob Gunter on the classical guitar, a Native American flautist and Jeffrey Scott Stewart on several instruments.  Check Stewart out at

The admission is free, come and enjoy a day in the park with the best of the best artists, crafters and musicians. Food is available at the Sutton Store. Feel free to bring a blanket and picnic lunch to the park. No alcoholic beverages please.
