June 8, 2013. The Lil’ Calypso Art Festival at Chuck’s is a really fun Lake Martin event. First of all, it’s at the well known Chuck’s Marina in Blue Creek, so there’s pizza and live music. Second, there’s a broad, diverse group of artists represented – from t-shirt and Lake Martin knick-knack vendors to what I consider to be serious artists, both painters and sculptors. I’ve videoed a few of the booths in the video below.
This is pretty famous Lake Martin annual event they do as a fundraiser for the Union Volunteer Fire Department. It’s the first time I’ve been in several years, and the parking is tight, but they have a shuttle to take you back and forth to your car. You can check out Chuck’s Facebook page for info on their events throughout the summer.
If you’re not familiar with the restaurant side of Chuck’s Marina, Chuckwalla Pizza, here’s a quick video I shot about it several years ago:
