Dozens of artisans will descend on downtown Marysville in early August to show off their best creations.

Marysville Street Festival, Handmade and Homegrown, takes place Aug. 10 through 12 on Third Street in downtown Marysville.

“We have between 80 and 100 vendors,” said Lorene Wren, who is organizing the event that has been held for the past 32 years. To participate in the annual street fair, people have to either produce or grow what they sell. Some of the vendors include someone who manufactures doll clothes, jewelry makers, a honey manufacturer who will bring their bees and a local flower grower.

Wren, who also owns Wrenhaven Vintage Market in Marysville, said some festival participants have had a presence at the festival for the past 20 years.

When asked if it was worth it? “It must be or they wouldn’t be coming back,” Wren said.

She was also appreciative of the city’s support and effort’s to beautify the downtown area.

“We are really enjoying how beautiful the street is with the flower baskets the city hung for us,” Wren said.

The festival goes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and goes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
