From the press release:

Who-Fest Chattanooga [13] Returns to Coolidge Park.

A two-day outdoor celebration of folk, outsider, visionary and self-taught art.

Winder Binder Gallery is proud to present the Who-Fest [13] Folk Art Festival on May 11th and 12th at Coolidge on the NorthShore of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Celebrating it 7th year in Chattanooga, the Festival is produced by Winder Binder Gallery & Bookstore in collaboration with the Who Ha Da Da Artist’ Fellowship.

Originally produced in Atlanta, Georgia, Who-Fest moved to Chattanooga in 2007. The festival normally attracts 50-80 local, regional and national artists and provides the unique opportunity to meet and purchase directly from artists that specialize in folk, outsider, visionary, and self-taught art. Fields of study include painting, glass, metalworking, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, furniture, photography and textiles.

After a successful move from Renaissance Park to Coolidge Park in 2012, the festival committee decided to make the change permanent and will continue to produce a spring and fall show at Coolidge Park.

Festival organizers are also pleased to announce that Who-Fest [13], under the direction of Dana Rogers, will once again host two days of diverse musical offerings from local performers. A complete list of performers, and schedule, are available at www.whofest.com

Hours are Saturday from 11am to 6pm and Sunday from 11am to 5pm. Admission is free. For more information, contact Winder Binder Gallery of Folk Art at 423-413-8999, email to kara@winderbinder.com , or visit http://www.whofest.com

Who-Fest [13] partners: Brewer Media, The Chattanooga Pulse, Coca Cola Bottling Company, The ‘Noog, Winder Binder Gallery & Bookstore and the Who Ha Da Da Artist’ Fellowship.
