Zora Neale Hurston was an African-American anthropologist and writer who made her home in Eatonville.

This annual festival no doubt attracts fans of the Ms. Hurston from all over the country and nearby communities such as Longwood. To advertise events such as these, printing companies are often asked to provide marketing products such as flyers and brochures to help spread the word.
