Vestival Festival In South Knoxville

Knoxville (WVLT) -- People had the chance to catch a bit of history just south of the Tennessee river this afternoon.

The South Knoxville Arts and Heritage Center hosted its annual Vestival all afternoon.

Vestival takes place on the grounds of the old Candoro Marble Company show room near Vestal.

The marble company was once our country's top supplier of Tennessee Pink Marble, and its products have been used all over the country including the National Museum of Art in Washington D.C.

"This is our Seventh Annual Vestival," said Becky Wade who sits on the board of the South Knoxville Arts and Heritage Center. "The purpose of the event is to bring awareness to the Candoro building here and to also let all of Knoxville know about South Knoxville"

Vestival is always held on the Saturday before Mothers Day.

This year's celebration featured two stages with live music, tours of the Candoro building, and many craft and food venders.
