Don't Miss the Metal Monkey Artisan Market on July 28, 2019

The second annual "Metal Monkey's Artisan Market" will feature over three dozen local artists and crafters showcasing their talent. 
Shop for family and friends, or treat yourself to something truly unique created by local artisans. There will even be a Henna tattoo artist available! 

The family-friendly event will take place outside where you can enjoy craft beer, food, and live music while you shop. There will also be additional artists available inside. AND as an added bonus, a percentage of all event proceeds will be donated to a local charity. The St. Baldrick's Foundation is the charity for this event and more information will be posted soon.
