Historic Downtown Clarksville is gearing up for the 14th Annual "FROLIC ON FRANKLIN: A Celebration of the Arts" on Saturday, September 14, from 8:30am to 3:30pm.  Presented by the Roxy Regional Theatre, this free event will showcase the works of over two dozen artists, staged entertainment and art demonstrations -- all along the 100 block of Franklin Street.

A variety of original fine art, as well as handmade crafts, will be on display including paintings and photography, jewelry, clay garden items, woodwork, purses and scarves, pottery, candles, jewelry, woven and knitted items, and seasonal gifts.  Items will be for sale with prices ranging from $2 to $500.

"We are thrilled to have Frolic on Franklin back for its fourteenth year in Historic Downtown Clarksville," says Executive Director Ryan Bowie.  "Vendors are coming from all over the region to demonstrate, show and sell their wares during this daylong festival, with a variety of items for all ages and tastes.  Join us as we celebrate the arts in our community!"

A crowd favorite is seeing, and often participating in, artists' demonstrations.  Several booths will offer the opportunity to learn techniques directly from the artists throughout the day, including jewelry making, live painting demos and large interactive painting.  The festival will also include a bake sale with proceeds benefiting the Roxy Regional Theatre, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to producing professional live theatre and promoting the arts, with emphasis on education, in Clarksville, Middle Tennessee and the Southeast.
