Red River Art, Wine & Music Fest Community Art Project 2020

Stop by and pickup one of these cool drawstring bags (a $2 donation is requested), decorate it, bling it, paint it to your heart's content and then return it to us. We will put them all on display and sell them during the Festival for around $15!!  These bags can serve a multitude of purposes - both functional and as decor. This project will continue though the festival has been postponed
