Come "Back to Grayton Beach" on May 9th & 10th for ArtsQuest
May 5, 2012 by SoWal Staff
Did you know that ArtsQuest began 24 years ago in Grayton Beach? It was known then as the Grayton Beach Fine Arts Festival, and it lived in Grayton Beach for seven years. On the 20th anniversary of ArtsQuest, the Cultural Arts Alliance (CAA) decided to start a tradition of having a reunion event, bringing friends of the Festival, old and new, back to Grayton during ArtsQuest. This year, there are two opportunities to get together, reminisce, hear great music and storytelling, eat delicious food and just enjoy the laid-back, funky vibe of historic Grayton Beach.
On Wednesday, May 9th, there will be live music by local favorites, The Steenos, who will be picking their bluegrass tunes in the Back Yard of Love at Hibiscus. From 6:00pm to 9:00pm, Chef Colin Smith will have some of his creations available for purchase, and beer and wine will be available for donation.
On Thursday, May 10th, be enchanted as South Walton natives share their stories of days gone by during Grayt Coffee House's "Stories and Shrimp Boil." A low country boil will be available for $10 a plate, and beer and wine will be available for a donation.
