The Annual Secret City Festival has fast become one of the major summer events in Tennessee, attended by 20,000 to 25,000. The two-day festival combines music, food, antique and unjuried crafts vendors (all outside in tents), plus World War II re-enactments, activities for children, and evening concerts.
By popular demand, the Festival added a juried INSIDE show several years ago sponsored by the Oak Ridge Art Center, "Tennessee Creates." Truly a juried fair, participation is dependent on acceptance of work by the jury committee from the Oak Ridge Art Center. All work submitted to jurors and for sale must be original. Jurying sessions will be held as needed from first reception of images until spaces are filled, so apply early. Inquire with the Art Center directly for a prospectus each year.
In addition there will be instructors demonstrating their technique throughout each day, talking with the public, and answering questions.
