If you love art, food, and music, don't miss the Junebug Summer Fair coming up on June 16 and 17 in Ben Wheeler, Texas.

Van Zandt County, in my mind, has become an enclave of artists, music, food, and all kinds of interesting things. Seriously, if you've not taken a day trip over to Edom, Ben Wheeler, Canton, etc., I can't recommend it enough.

And this weekend's Junebug Summer Fair hosted by The Forge Bar & Grill is just yet another example of why.

Friday, June 16 through Saturday, June 17, there's all kinds of fun to be had in Ben Wheeler. There's a chance you've been to The Forge--the food is fantastic! However, have been in their "backyard?" You may wanna wander over and explore this weekend.

So what's going on? Two days of art, food, and music.

Art demonstrations include pottery, glass art, looming, blacksmithing, and more. There will also be vendors offering their hand-crafted goods at the expanded Sunday Farmers' Market and live music throughout the weekend. Here's a look at who's playing according to the event page:
