STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Starkville's Cotton District Arts Festival gave thousands a chance to enjoy local art.

"I love this environment, this is probably one of my favorite weekends in Starkville," Jovial Art founder Kelly Quick said.

There was something for everyone at the festival.

It included three stages which hosted dozens of musicians throughout the day and more than 130 artists set up booths along the streets.

"It was a hobby and it's just grown a little bit," Quick said.

Quick sells her own jewelry.

"[This is] a great way to contribute to the community and put myself out there," Quick said.

Crafter Scott McQueen makes art out of old license plates.

"Some people really like it, but most people appreciate it even if it's not their thing," McQueen said.

Which is what the festival's all about.

"What I find is that everybody's different," McQueen said. "Everybody's unique."

It gives the city a chance to highlight culture.

"Starkville's such a small town, but we have a lot of good things about it," Starkville resident Sarah Rendon said.
