Double Decker Festival 2017 Event Scheduling

With all the excitement surrounding Double Decker Festival’s music lineup each year, it is easy to forget about everything else the festival has to offer. Double Decker is a celebration of not just music, but also the flavors and art of the region. This year, festival goers will be treated to artist demonstrations from 9am–5pm on Friday April 28. Including mediums ranging from kudzu basketry to art-knitting and oil painting, there’s something to pique everyone’s interests.
