      to the festival
  We are excited to bring to you this year’s Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival presented by Blue Moon.
Our partners are pulling out all the stops this year, starting with the Blue Moon Kick-Off event hosted at our friends’ place, The Jackson Pearl, on October 19. This officially kicks off our Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival festivities. During this season, visit our local restaurants and bars and grab a Blue Moon. Be sure to ask for the “Blue Moon” cup, which features artwork
by the Blue Moon Art Project winner, Adam Plitt.
During the two-day festival, shop with nearly 400 artists, crafters, and food vendors from all over the United States. This year’s vendors come from as far away as New York, Utah, and Missouri to Texas, South Carolina, and Florida. Nearly 24 states are represented by our vendors this year. We will have some fun art activities featuring some of these vendors during the event.
Speaking of art, the annual festival t-shirt is something you will want
to take home. Designed by local Anderson family member Matt Stebly, the shirt advertises a crab showing off his painted pottery bowl. Visit Stebly at his shop, Twisted Anchor Tattoo and Gallery located on Government Street in the heart of the festival.
We could not put on this event without our dedicated team at the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce- Main Street-Tourism Bureau, our
