There are incredible things happening in Van Zandt County. In fact, one of my favorite places for a day trip in East Texas is the artistically vibrant, small town of Edom.

Despite its size, it has become a hub of creativity. I like to go any day to do some shopping and dining.

However, if you are looking for one of the best times to go and enjoy Edom, you don’t want to miss the “Edom Art Festival”, scheduled for this weekend!

A family-friendly event featuring arts and crafts, wine, food trucks, live music and more – it’s a lover’s dream for art, community and culture. This year, they are planning all kinds of entertainment for festival-goers.
