For the past 41 years the Aspasians Art & Craft Fair has been held rain or shine in Rockwall. The very first fair was held in the Brookshires parking lot and raised $100. Now located at Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium, it has grown to over 200 vendors selling everything from jewelry, gifts and home goods to food, fine art and trendy apparel. The success of the bi-annual fair has enabled the Aspasians to award over $40,000 in scholarship money to deserving Rockwall and Rockwall Heath graduating seniors each year.
Aspasians is a volunteer group of 35 women who live in Rockwall County that dedicate their time and talents to the service of others. Since 1972, the ladies of Aspasians have worn their traditional navy blue aprons to host Aspasians Marketplace, which supports local businesses and raises funds for college scholarships.
We unite congenial young women throughout the community for the purpose of friendship and service to others. As an organization, we recognize and aid individuals in our community through philanthropic projects. The bond of women in Aspasians is strong as we strive to create an atmosphere of social belonging and life-long friendships.
