  • Breakfast is not included. We recommend: Tacky Jacks, Buzz Cats, Broken Egg, Southern
    Grind, and Coffee House
  • Since the Orange Beach Event Center is one “open complex”, it will be easy to use time
    between workshops to mingle, use the restrooms, visit exhibitors... Do try to be mindful of noise
    level during workshops please.
  • If setting up an Artist’s Market Table (please participate!), then you can set up Thursday
    between 430-5:30, or after you register Friday morning. Bring a cloth to cover your area while
    you are in workshops... the “public” never comes in the center and we lock the doors, so
    treasures will be safe.
