CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS
COMING UP APRIL 8 and 9, 2017...
ONE MORE REASON TO TAKE PART
March 31, 2017
Continuing our countdown of the Top 10 Reasons to Attend the
Old Florida Celebration of the Arts - April 8th and 9th,
One of the Top 10 Art Fairs in America (2016 ArtFairCalendar.com Survey).
#1. THE CEDAR KEY COMMUNITY
The number one reason given for visiting the OFCA by both visitors and artists: the people! Cedar Key was challenged with extensive damage by Hurricane Hermine and, as they have done in the past when crisis hits the community, Cedar Key residents, friends and family responded with the energy, dedication and comradery that makes an outstanding community. Cedar Key is open for business again and it's a place you should visit, not just for the art or the food, not just for its natural beauty or long history, or because the OFCA is a free and pet-friendly event, but because of the people. The friendliness and hospitality of Cedar Key makes it the #1 reason to join us for the Old Florida Celebration of the Arts April 8 & 9 2017.
Join us at the 53rd Annual Spring Arts Festival in Cedar Key this weekend. Booths are open 10 am - 5 pm both days. Art Demonstrations are planned for 1 pm - 4 pm both afternoons. Enjoy live music, great food, and kids activities in beachfront City Park at this free, pet-friendly, smoke free event.
