Crossroads at Crabapple Antiques and Art Festival Tradition Continues

Make your way to historic Crabapple on Saturday, Oct. 6 for the gathering of more than 100 antique dealers and artists – and thousands of residents eager to find pieces worthy enough for their homes.

The tradition continues in historic Crabapple on Saturday, Oct. 6 as the Crossroads at Crabapple Antiques and Art Festival returns. More than 100 antique dealers and artists from six states will fill some of the side streets in Crabapple, drawing thousands of people to the community.

A tradition since 1969, this one-day only, rain or shine, outdoor festival features thousands of antiques, accessories and unique pieces of art in all mediums, according to a release from Milton Communications Manager Jason Wright.

New this year is the "Literary Pumpkin Contest," a partnership with Crabapple Crossing Elementary in which students' decorated pumpkins - inspired by their favorite books - are placed along Birmingham Highway. A team of judges, including Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood, will choose the winner, Wright wrote.

As always, rounding out the festival are the always popular roaming musicians, fantastic eats from Atlanta's hottest food trucks, plenty of children's art activities and an easy walk to the free parking areas. Handicap parking is available.

"We get quite a crowd, so shoppers need to come early for the best buys," said festival co-organizer Amanda Quintana of the Crabapple Community Association.

Her fellow organizer, Lisa Renko, agreed.

"We have thousands of antiques – from vintage to American Country – pottery, quilts, plus, as always, the perfect find for someone searching out that unique piece of art or jewelry," she said.

The City of Milton is a presenting sponsor of this community event coordinated by the Crabapple Community Association, Wright said.
