Annual Craft Festival Comes to St. Armand's
Posted by Lido Key Real Estate on
The 12th annual St. Armand’s Circle Craft Festival is coming right up; this year, it’s June 8th and 9th.
Dozens of Florida’s most noted craft artists will return to St. Armand’s Circle for its largest annual crafts event, along with the most talented newcomers to the contemporary craft scene. For 2 days, craft-lovers will enjoy displays and have the opportunity to purchase original paintings, sculptures, jewelry, pottery, soaps, candles, clothing, and so much more in a relaxed, outdoor venue. This year, a “Green Market” is being added at the Craft Festival; the Green Market will feature a variety of plants, orchids, and food treats. Although it’s called by sponsors the “Best Lil’ Craft Fair in America,” in previous years this has been a hugely popular event; thousands are expected to take part in the delightful 2-day celebration of arts, crafts, and talent.
You’ll be certain to discover a variety of fascinating and often breathtaking craft work including photography, ceramics, floral and silk arrangements, and even handmade clothes. You’ll find art and craftwork ranging from low-priced handmade jewelry to pricey sculptures and paintings. Artists and crafters are chosen to take part in the Craft Festival through a process that guarantees only the finest exhibits. The annual St. Armand’s Circle Craft Festival is an outstanding weekend of fine art and craftwork along with tasty food treats and fabulous shopping opportunities. For the safety and comfort of all, these items will not be allowed onsite: weapons, glass containers, coolers, skates, skateboards, or in-line skates.
The 12th annual St. Armand’s Circle Craft Festival is produced by Howard Alan Events and American Craft Endeavors. Sponsors of this year’s event include Comcast Cable, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the Bradenton Herald, Pelican Press, Sarasota Weekly, WLTQ-FM, and the St. Armand’s Circle Association. The St. Armand’s Circle Craft Festival is one of the greater Sarasota area’s many festive, yearly outdoor events. Dozens of uniquely different arts and crafts festivals, music festivals, farmers markets, and comparable community events enhance the area’s quality of life throughout the year and make the greater Sarasota area one of the most attractive destinations anywhere.
Admission to this year’s Craft Festival is free on both Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th. The Festival runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both days. While you’re there, take the opportunity to check out the many boutiques, restaurants, and other retailers at St. Armand’s Circle, Florida’s most widely-acclaimed location for elegant retail shopping, fine dining, and sophisticated nightlife. A delightful weekend awaits you!
