The 24th Annual Florida CraftArt Festival is a destination for tourists and local visitors to enjoy a fun-filled, visually exciting Florida weekend. Collectors and art lovers will be delighted by the creations of one hundred of the nation’s best contemporary fine craft artists from twelve states.
There will be artist demonstrations, food trucks, craft beers and a kids’ art activity tent that is sponsored by the Duncan McClellan Gallery. Children will enjoy creating crafts taught by members of the Tampa Bay Surface Design Guild. The two-day festival kicks off the Holiday shopping season and features handmade works in ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media and wood.
