Kitty Windham, director of the Performing Arts Center, said local vendors and caterers will fill practically every inch of the building with tasty baked goods, handmade specialty items and Christmas decorations galore.

With different items for sale each year, the Holiday Festival has long been a popular event for the residents of Selma.

“This year we have lots of new vendors and probably more handmade crafts,” said Windham. “Visitors will be able to find an amazing amount of beautiful things that people spent hours working on.”

Clothing, accessories, toys and unique knick-knacks are just a few of the many arts and crafts that could be found at this year’s Holiday Festival.

A bake sale is also expected to take place each day, with different caterers serving up their specialty cakes, cookies, and treats.

Proceeds from the Holiday Festival, which is also being sponsored by the City of Selma, will go towards the Old Depot Museum so it can continue preserving and protecting the city’s historic past.

The Holiday Festival will take place from Monday until Dec. 18.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Windham said.

There is no cost to get in the Holiday Festival and browse the treats.

The Performing Arts Center is located at 1000 Selma Avenue, across from the Centre of Commerce.
