SEBRING –– Get ready to step back in time to enjoy those fabulous “Roaring 20s” as the 34th annual Arts and Crafts Festival unfolds Saturday, Feb. 11 in historic downtown from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We will have over 50 craft vendors along with food vendors and entertainment,” said Jennifer Swain, event director with the Sebring Partnership. “We encourage everyone to dress up (in 1920s-era attire).”
Arts and crafts will include painting, photography, plants, knitted and crocheted items, candles, cookies, jewelry, soaps, honey, pottery, wreaths, jams and jellies, dips and spices, jerky and Greek products.
Be sure to plan for lunch as food vendors will be there. Smokin’ D’s BBQ; chicken, shrimp and burgers from WTF Concessions; Italian sausage by Zesty Tomato’s Pizza and Grill; and mini-doughnuts and fried Oreo cookies and more from K.C. Foods are all on the menu.
New vendors this year include SunCoast Bank and The Tutoring Center. Be sure to stop by and say hello to your newest business neighbors.
There will be live music by “The Jazz Phools” and antique cars will be on display around the Circle.
“We will also have some kid crafts by the Children’s Museum of the Highlands. This will be in front of their building as they are still undergoing renovations and are not open yet,” said Swain.
Stop by the Off Circle Gallery for your chance to “rent a brush” and paint a section of an abstract- design painting. The completed masterpiece will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Highlands County Humane Society.
