Long-running art festival gets past the half-ton mark

December 6, 2013 by  

The 51st annual Biz Art is taking place in downtown Coral Springs next month, and is a presentation of the City of Coral Springs, the Public Art Committee, and the Community Redevelopment Agency.

The event is set to feature local artisans who will be selling a variety of handmade items such as jewelry, paintings, and ceramics. There are also expected to be live bands, food trucks, and children’s activities like face painting. The weekly downtown green market will also be taking place during the festival; the market provides entertainment and specialty vegan and organic foods.

Vendors are able to rent a 10×10 foot tented booth for $100. Sponsorships, which include a booth, are also available from $200 to $400, and all of the sponsors will be recognized at the event and in any print advertising.

The festival should be a great place for the public to be made aware of the work that local artisans are doing, and for those artisans to increase their customer base. When events such as this take place in Coral Springs and organizers wish to give recognition to sponsors, they often do this by investing in products like banners from local print companies.

Biz Art is taking place at the Financial Plaza and City Hall South on January 11 from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. In the event of poor weather, an alternative date of January 12 has been earmarked. To find out more about the event, or to become a vendor, contact Laura Atria at 954-344-1162
