The admission is free, and attendees can buy wine to sip while they shop and browse the local art being showcased. Charcuterie plates and desserts will be available to purchase by local food vendors Molly Pie Golly and Taste of Europe Delights, and the market will be decked out with mural art from local non-profit youth center The Lift.

Live music will be provided by local musicians Eric Kirkendoll and Sam Steadman, and there are tables provided by the city of Ringgold for shoppers to sit and enjoy their food and the music.

Local artist and teacher Katie Dwyer will also be holding a Paint and Sip Class during this event from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The class will offer artists of all skill levels a chance to relax and paint a cow on canvas. Cost of the class is $30 and includes all supplies. Call 903-1379 to sign up for the class, space is limited.

"This is a wonderful collaboration of many businesses to support the local arts and to emphasize how important art is to any thriving community," said Rabbit Valley Market Manager Samantha Martin.
