There are some 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 'April in Edom' Art & Wine Experience, set for Saturday, April 27 & Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

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 musical performances on FIVE different stage areas throughout the day. In addition, check out the street performers, 'PAWS Pet Parade,' unique vendors in various artistic mediums, and relax in the 'Wine Garden of Edom'--and much more. What about for the kids? They'll love the Improv Theater for kids, featuring 'Play Time with Eliot.' There will even be a 'Kids Art Area!' Be sure and stay for the 'Sundown Concert' featuring The Blue Louie Band on Saturday night.

This is a free community event hosted by the vendors and sponsors and organized by three passionate individuals. Donations, however, are most welcome. Ready to learn more? Check out the official website: You can get more info about the event and the participating vendors and sponsors.

Hope to see you there!
