Potters, folk artists and community crafters will come out of their studios and homes and display their wares on the streets of Lula to celebrate the arts and culture of Northeast Georgia.

The second annual Lula Fall Festival will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Lula Train Depot. Admission is free.

The festival will feature classic music as well as arts and crafts from nearly 50 vendors, including at least two dozen potters. Tractors will be on display and farm equipment demonstrations will be conducted.

One of the highlights is the community mural project. Mark Lusink and local artist Larry Ledford will design it. The mural’s theme is “Pottery in Lula,” which embodies and celebrates the town’s established tradition in pottery.

The festival also showcases a closer look at Lula’s newly revitalized downtown area.

“Our first event last fall was a good success and brought many people to downtown Lula to enjoy folk art, entertainment and socializing from across the region,” said Chris Lusink with the Lula Belton Historical Society.

A bigger crowd is expected this year.

“We want to make this year’s festival twice as large as last year’s,” Lusink said.

To assist in drawing larger attendance, Lula is offering raffle tickets, children activities and live music this year. Inflatables for children will be available.

The group Fiddlin’ Around will entertain with a mix of country, bluegrass, Celtic and folk music. Its members are Clyde Beck, Sally Stites and Al Mcleod.

To feed hungry visitors and quench their thirst, the Lula Belton Historical Society will sell barbecue and all the trimmings.
