Welcome to TigerFest

The Talley Upper Elementary School PTO is proud to announce our second ever, large-scale, annual fundraising event open to the community.  TigerFest will spotlight local businesses, artists, and musicians and provide a place for community members to gather, socialize, eat, and play.  Funds raised through TigerFest will go to the Talley PTO to support the needs of Talley Upper Elementary School's students, teachers, and families.

2023 Artist Information

Our goal is to offer a variety of family friendly, original arts and crafts at TigerFest.  All artwork must be original and crafted by the artist.  Last year, we had over 500 attendees at TigerFest and are projected to have more this coming year. If you are interested in having an artist booth at TigerFest, please submit the form below with a $15 application fee. The application fee will be credited toward your booth fee if accepted.  At that time, you will be required to pay the remaining balance ($35 without table and chair or $50 with 1 6ft table and 1 chair).
