Discover Local Vendors And Makers
Music may be one of the top reasons to buy tickets to Sloss Fest, but it’s definitely not the only reason.
During the event, there will also be lots of activities to experience and local vendors and makers to discover.
Sip on creative cocktails and delicious craft beer. Devour totally tasty food. Immerse yourself in arts and crafts. Watch a live iron-pouring demonstration. You can even bring along a hula hoop to show off those skillful hips as they swing to musical beats throughout the festival.
One local artist is Hannah Holsomback. Hannah is a hair stylist at Resultz Day Spa in Cahaba Heights and will be taking her hair braiding talents to Sloss Fest with a braid bar. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of braids, such as French, Dutch, fishtails and infinity. (Plus many others!)
“I love doing all kinds of hair, but I really love the creative freedom that the girls and guys at Sloss Fest give me,” said Hannah. “They are all there to have fun and they want their hair to express that. Last year, I met so many interesting people and love that it’s a way to grow my business in a city that I love!”
After having your locks transformed into an amazing braid, you’ll need great skin to go with it, right? So you’ll definitely want to check out the local makers at Left Hand Soap Company.
Originally opening in Tuscaloosa in 1999, Left Hand Soap Co. has been selling all-natural, locally-made, high-quality, affordable soaps and skincare for 19 years. This will be the company’s third year selling their products at Sloss Fest.
“We love meeting people and hearing new music. It’s the perfect experience for us!” said company owner, Soapy Jones. “Our favorite part is the Seasick Records local stage. Alabama has some killer bands that everyone should know about.”
