Jubilee Festival of Arts

Jubilee Festival of Arts,   Olde Town Daphne, Alabama

September, 2017 marked the 29th year of the Jubilee Festival of Arts in Daphne, Alabama.  Over 100 vendors packed the main street of Daphne for the free weekend event.  The warm weather did not deter the crowds as they wandered though the tents filled with the merchant’s offerings. Local artisans, photographers and craftsmen along with those from Texas and Tennessee, provided a sea of artwork and crafts for purchase.

Various musical acts and cooking demonstrations took to the stage for the enjoyment of the festival attendees. Local hospitals, medical practices as well as local utilities and government dispensed information.

The two-day event was a good way to get started on that Christmas shopping list.

Roadrunner Journeys was created as an outlet for my photography and travel writing. My passion is travel and sharing my stories by documenting my travel memories, one photograph at a time. While usually a solo traveler, my trips are well planned adventures that provide for maximum fulfillment and affordability both internationally and domestically. My blog features adventures from points around the US, Canada and Europe as well as long weekend road trips, especially if one features cheesecake. A well thought out tour of the northern Florida locations of the Cheesecake Factory may bring some gastronomic excess but it was well worth the adventure of traveling the back roads of the state. The Alabama Gulf Coast is my home which provides me with access to beautiful sunsets, seafood and inspiration.
