These talented individuals will accompany the nearly 500 other handmade, boutique and gourmet vendors you can find at the River Spirit Expo at Expo Square July 14-16, 2017, in Green Country’s largest and longest running unique marketplace. Tickets are $8 and good for all three days. Kids 12 and under get in free. You can purchase tickets online where $1 of every purchase goes to benefit Food for Kids, or with cash at the door.
