Original art and music sway into Vero Beach
January 14, 2013 by Mark
The Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art and Music Festival is a two-day festival which features arts and crafts vendors and musical performances from local artists.
This year, there will be approximately 130 juried arts and crafts vendors taking part in the festival. Each artist had to apply by sending three images of their work and the booth they plan to provide. Those accepted to exhibit and sell their works at the festival were able to rent a 10 x 12 space for $125, and it is up to each vendor to provide their own tables, chairs, and tents. Artists compete for four cash prizes – $400 for Best in Show, $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $100 for third place. In addition to the cash prizes, the festival is a great opportunity for artists and crafters to become known in the community.
Musical performers will include Penny Creek and Ben Presage. In addition, there will be a variety of food vendors on site.
Organizers will no doubt be working with Vero Beach printing companies to prepare for this annual event. Services such as banner printing and sign printing will help the organizers to highlight the fact that the festival is taking place in the park. Each year, a banner featuring the name of the festival and its dates is hung high above the entrance.
The 12th annual Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art and Music Festival is free to attend and will take place by the Indian River Lagoon at Riverview Park from January 19 – 20.
