How Fun! Celebrate Fall with Art, Music, & Food at the Edom Art Festival!
There are incredible things going on in Van Zandt County. In fact, one of my favorite day trip spots in East Texas is the small, yet artistically vibrant city of Edom.
Despite its size, it's become a hub of creativity. I like to go no matter the day to do a bit of shopping and dining.
However, if you're looking for one of the absolute best times to go and enjoy Edom, you don't want to miss the 'Edom Art Festival,' set for this weekend!
A family-friendly event offering arts and crafts, wine, food trucks, live music, and more--this is an art, community, and culture lovers dream. This year, they are planning all kinds of fun for fest-goers.
OK, let's look at the food vendors who will be there this year: (all schedules courtesy of Edom Chamber of Commerce.)
