If you have lived in the Brandon/Riverview Florida area for the past few years, you’ve probably heard about this local art festival. I have had the privilege to participate in this event multiple times. Winthrop Town Centre is a wonderful location full of people who enjoy community, art and some great food. If you have a chance to stop by, do so. There are some really talented people in our area. You would be so amazed by some of the artwork and crafts that are for sale.
Not only is artwork and food on sale at this festival but you get free entertainment too! Local musical artists, Winthrop Charter School students music, entertainers and performers of all walks of life. Seriously, this a great weekend get away that is so close to home. Support your local small businesses and artists and connect to the community.
For about four years my class participated in this event and the students loved creating works of art and crafts! Even more, they loved working the booth and seeing people enjoying their work. Here are a few pictures of some of the unique work my students have done. Trust me there are a lot of booths with many different items and interests that you’ll be sure to find something you admire.
There are many opportunities for children to enjoy this event as well. So bring the kids and encourage them to enjoy the arts. The Art Factory will be open to help kids get inspired and create something to take home to remind them of the artist in them.
Art lovers of all sorts are selling their priceless works of art as well as crafts on March 25th and 26th (2017). The Art Festival is located in Winthrop Town Centre area off of Bloomingdale and Providence. There is a large field area behind Boca’s Restaurant that will be filled with tents ready for customers. Hope to see you there!
