TroyFest fills downtown Troy with art and artists

TroyFest made its return to downtown Troy this weekend.

Artists from across the state of Alabama had the opportunity to not only showcase their artwork but to celebrate all artists throughout Troy’s history.

“TroyFest is held in honor and memory of Jean Lake who is a folk artist,” says TroyFest Publicity Chair Morgan Drinkard. “The Jean Lake art festival was held at the Pike Pioneer Museum for many years. This is our 19th year on the downtown square. We were absent a year for COVID. Last year we were able to have our festival but we still saw a decreased crowd, one, we didn’t have good weather and, two, people still weren’t completely comfortable coming in crowds and this year that is not the case. We are seeing record number crowds, record numbers of people enjoying the festival and it is such a wonderful thing to see.”
