Art, Wine and Wheels is back for 2021 and its bringing together three of Ridgeland’s signature events (Ridgeland Fine Arts Festival, Sante South Wine Festival, and the Natchez Trace Century Ride, Mississippi’s premier cycling event) to create one epic weekend of cultural and outdoor experiences.
Experience wonderful art while being able to interact directly with the artist at this festival. This free event will feature Artisans from the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi demonstrating their various crafts and they’ll be on hand at the Children’s Creative Craft Corner to help your budding artist create their own “make and take” piece of art.
