Silo Square set to host first Arts Festival 

By Bailee Harris

Silo Square is gearing up for its first Arts Festival, set to take place on Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Benefiting the Palmer Home for Children, the event aims to combine local talent with supporting a vital cause. 

Leah Brigance, Silo Square Marketing and Event Coordinator, shares, “We will have a lot of painters, jewelry makers, a face painter for the children, live music, and paint stations. The DeSoto Arts Council will be out here, and they will have something for the kids to do.” 

She continues, “Palmer Home, our beneficiary of the event, will have games, cornhole, and balloons. So, it’ll be a fun event just to walk around, let mom shop, and have some activities here and there for the kids.” 

Every dollar collected from vendor fees, starting at $100, will be channeled directly towards Palmer Home’s noble cause. Moreover, guests will have opportunities to contribute through various donation avenues across event grounds. 

“We want it to be a fun family day,” Brignance said. “Come grab lunch at Staks, walk down May Boulevard and look at the vendors, and then pop into Vampire Penguin for a snack. Make it a full, fun family day.” 

Mark your calendars, gather your loved ones, and join Silo Square for their first annual Arts Festival in order to paint a brighter future for the children of Palmer Home.
