New arts present raises cash for Shelby County Animal Shelter | Neighborhood

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A new festival was held in Shelbyville this weekend to raise money for pets in need.

The Shelbyville Fall Art and Craft Show featured more than 80 vendors, food trucks, a petting zoo, and face painting over Labor Day weekend.

ArtSpark Productions’ Sherry Kremer says the first-time event was so successful that some vendors ran out of products on the first day.

Kremer used to work in tourism and wanted to develop a show that promotes regional companies – but not only regional companies benefited from the show.

“I wanted to create an event that would help the vendors, artisans and artists, and also benefit a local charity, so we chose Shelby County Animal Rescue,” said Kremer.

A number of raffles and promotions were also offered during the weekend to raise funds for the shelter.
