Arts & Crafts Expo begins In Ft. Lauderdale

November 1, 2017 by  

The Oceanside Art & Craft Expo kicked off in Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday, October 29.

Featuring artists and crafters who showcase their work, events like these are often exciting for those who want to start on their Christmas shopping early. Food and drinks were also available, and there was a playground and splash fountain available for kids. Nearby Pompano Beach also offered entertainment for attendees.

Visitors also got the chance to enjoy music from Love 94, a local contemporary jazz station that plays a mix of cool rhythms and jazzy blues. The event welcomes corporate vendors, who should contact the organization for more information. Arts and crafts expos are often well attended, and businesses can use banner printing to advertise their presence at either a corporate booth, or by supporting the event in general.

The expo was being held at Great Lawn at Atlantic BLVD and A1A in Pompano Beach. Admission was free, and the event lasted from approximately noon to 4:00 pm.

For those who missed the October event and want to either set up a booth or see the expositions, the event will recur on November 19 and December 17 at the same times and locations. The venue is wheelchair accessible.

For more information, contact the venue directly. The beach is considered particularly impressive during the late fall months, according to local media.
