Woodstock Is No More

I guess now it’s really official – after 36 years, the Woodstock Arts & Crafts Festival will no longer be in Welleby Park in Sunrise the first weekend of December. This is very sad. They actually announced that they were hanging it up several months ago, but maybe I was just having trouble accepting reality. This morning I got word that they took down their website.

We participated five times in Woodstock, won a few awards, and because of their character, they had become probably our favorite festival. And after we decided to stop doing shows in Miami, this Sunrise show became the best opportunity for our hometown friends to see us in action. Penni and her posse have done a lot of good for their community over the years and we will miss them.

For those in the Miami-Dade delegation for whom life must go on, your best chance to see Nancy’s work is now the fledgling festival in Tamarac. Their third annual get-together should be the first weekend next April (2018). They are another small show that is developing their own charm. I’ll have more information about that festival as it becomes available. By then, they will have updated their website.

The Second Tamarac Arts And Crafts Festival Will Be Weekend Of April 1st

We were at last year’s inaugural event, and although new festivals are risky for artists, we were very happy. Was it beginner’s luck or do the promoters, the Greater Tamarac Chamber of Commerce and the City of Tamarac know what they’re doing? Come to the festival, north of the Tamarac Community Center, between 10 am and 4 pm, Saturday (April Fools’ Day) or Sunday, April 2, 2017 and find out with us. They are expecting three thousand visitors and will have more exhibitors than last year. There will also be live entertainment, a children’s area, a robotics exhibition, and more (meaning food). There is more information on their webpage.
