We Will Be Back In Winter Haven In Mid-March

This will be our sixth time at the Central Park Art Festival in seven yearsprevious (we were in Antarctica in 2016 instead), sponsored by the Victor Smith Law Group and put on by the Ridge Art Association. On Saturday, March 16th, the hours are from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday’s hours will be from 10 am to 4 pm. Central Park takes up three blocks between West 4th and 5th Streets and between North Avenue B and South Avenue A. Apparently, the city’s park renovations are now complete.


They are expecting up to 25,000 guests this year to more than 90 artists. There will also be a children’s hands-on tent, student art exhibit, live entertainment, and international food court. It doesn’t look like they’ve gotten the festival visitor website up and going, but it should soon be reachable from the Ridge Art Association website menu. Stay tuned.

39th Annual Central Park Art Festival Will Be March 18th & 19th

This will be our fourth participation in this event in five years (interrupted only by our trip to Antarctica last year). Run, as always, by the Ridge Art Association, this year’s sponsor is the Victor Smith Law Group. The festival is free to the public. On Saturday, the hours are 10 am to 5 pm and it will be open 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday. This year they are expecting around 19 thousand visitors to over 90 exhibitors. Again, there is not much more information on the festival website (Disregard their festival count – the sponsors are lawyers, not accountants.)
