Handcrafted Holidays is a new Holiday tradition for Clarksville

 

Clarksville Parks and RecreationClarksville, TN – The Wilma Rudolph Event Center, located at Liberty Park, played host to “Handmade Holidays,” a Crafters Bazaar which featured holiday-themed handmade and handcrafted items. It featured more than 40 booths of crafts, art, jewelry, pottery, quilts, soaps, and more.

Matthew Nixon of the Clarksville Department of Parks and Recreation said, “The idea for the Handmade Holidays event was the brainchild of the team behind the downtown market. Towards the end of the season. We knew that the market was going to be closing and we wanted to see if a craft show such as other entities have, would work here in Clarksville. So we scheduled it in the new Wilma Rudolph Event Center, and so far it’s been a huge success.”
