The fee for food
and/or drink vendors (anything edible) is $125 and a table is not included with this fee.

Still Waters Youth Sinfo-Nia of Metropolitan Atlanta, will return to the Bessie Smith
Cultural Center to perform during our inaugural community yard sale. "Sinfo-Nia’s
fundamental purpose is to give talented, young artists an opportunity to perform a
variety of multicultural productions, become more proficient musicians, travel, meet
other young artisans, prepare to earn college scholarships, and consider careers in
the music/dance industry," officials said. Also performing during the yard sale will be the Jazzanooga Youth Music Academy.
The event is free to attend and open to the public.
