Discover local artists in Winter Garden

November 7, 2012 by  

With the holidays quickly approaching, there seem to be more and more art and crafts festivals taking place throughout Florida. These festivals are a great opportunity for those who have not yet started or completed their holiday shopping to find a unique, handmade item that will appeal to their friends and loved ones.

One such festival that is taking place from November 24 – 25 is the 11th annual Winter Garden Art Festival presented by the Winter Garden Merchant’s Guild. The festival takes place along West Plant Street and is free to the public. This is a juried show in which all of the artisans had to apply to take part.

Vendors pay a $25 application fee and can rent a tent for $150 for both days. In addition to artisans, there will also be food vendors, live music performed on two stages, children’s activities, and a beer and wine store. The types of art that will be for sale will probably including paintings, handmade jewelry, ceramics, pottery, and fiber art. Those visiting are sure to find at least something that will please someone on their gift list.

No doubt visitors from all over the area, including nearby Ocoee, will want to visit the festival. Artisan vendors are therefore likely to be working with local printing companies to decorate and draw attention to their tents. Banner printing services can provide a colorful banner that can set their tent apart from the others, probably resulting in more people visiting the tent and purchasing items.
