Check out our promotional video for the 2nd Annual 863 Local FiArt Fest!

The 3rd Annual 863 Local FiArt Fest brought to you by Alfa Romeo FIAT of Winter Haven and The 863 Magazine, and promoted by Central Florida Event Vendors, will be held in Central Park 41 5th St NW, Winter Haven, Florida, 33881, on April 15, 2017, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

This is a FREE community event family/pet-friendly, featuring more than 100 LOCAL and talented artists from Central Florida only, food trucks, cottage food industry, fresh gourmet, raw local honey, all natural body products & candles, kids free art workshop area, bounce houses, and more. Artisans will be competing for cash prizes and selling their artwork, too. There is not a similar event like it in Polk County, Fl., that focuses on art only from Central Florida.

Because art matters and shopping small is important, we are excited that this event will not only promote our local arts, but will also show the community just how much talent we have right here in our own backyard. The community will experience and meet great artists who work with paintings, glass, ceramics, photography, mixed media, wood, metal, recycled art, sculptures, and much more.
