DeltaMade, a music and maker festival that started in Pine Bluff, is making its North Little Rock debut on Saturday, May 12. The fest will take place directly after the fourth Annual North Little Rock Mini Maker Faire.
The event will take place at the North Shore Riverwalk from 4-8 p.m. The free event is family friendly and features local artists, musicians and vendors that were born in or are currently living in the delta region of Arkansas. Attendees will enjoy shopping, food trucks, Arkansas craft beer, live music, performance art and nonprofit booths.
DeltaMade is as an educational and marketing program for the makers of the delta region of Arkansas. Communities Unlimited and Local First Arkansas are joining forces to bring the DeltaMade program back to life. The goal is to incorporate local makers into the economy by giving them access to resources to grow their craft into a revenue-generating opportunity and to hear stories of how culture shaped the maker movement of the region.
