Local art, music, food and wine will all be on display at Magnolia's annual Cork & Canvas on the Stroll May 12. Live music will be offered by the Randy Watkins Jazz Band and jazz/pop/blues artist Joey McGee.

"This is what we want the Stroll to bea place where the community can come together and enjoy each other, and our businesses get to take advantage of the community coming together," said Deborah Rose Miller, Magnolia's economic development coordinator.

Nearly 30 vendors will be selling their wares including The Calendar Garden, Beverly Cruz Jewelry, Young Living Essential Oils, Scentsy and Blingz.

"If you haven't gotten your mom a Mother's Day gift yet, it's a great time to get a last-minute item," Miller said.

The Magnolia Community Foundation will be selling lapel pins featuring the new City of Magnolia flag, which was designed by Magnolia West High School student Miguel Miranda. Money raised from sales of the pins will go toward the planned community recreation center at Unity Park.

A new feature of this year's event is the availability of licensed childcare, provided by Magnolia United Methodist Church for $10 per child. Papa Johns Pizza will provide food for the children, and games will be played.

Food vendors at the event include Grande Tamales, Chicken Express, Papa Johns Pizza, Yankee Doodle Donuts and vendors from the Texas Renaissance Festival. The Renaissance Festival's king and queen will also be on hand, along with a few of the festival's artists.

The Cork & Canvas event runs from 4–8 p.m. on the Magnolia Stroll, located on Commerce Street and FM 1488.
