This festival, which the promoter, Santa Fe College, claims is “North Central Florida’s oldest and finest annual springtime arts celebration”1 will be along NE 1st Street between 3rd and 6th Avenues.  Saturday’s hours are from 9 am to 5:30 pm, but Sunday’s times don’t start until noon.  According to their website (, there will be more to experience than just art, including a Saturday evening concert.  This will be our first year at this festival (we applied two years ago, but didn’t make it off the waiting list).  We are expecting an excellent show.

1.  Although this claim has too many qualifiers to impress me, the numbers speak for themselves.  This year, their 46th, they are expecting 110,000 visitors to 190 exhibitors.
