This festival, which will celebrate its 54th year of continuous operation in 2019, has become a city-wide tradition for generations of residents in and around DeLand. Home to Stetson University, DeLand boasts an art-savvy public that embraces the event as their "hometown" show.
Separation of fine art and craft from traditional art and craft insures an interested public visiting each section.
Extensive media campaign and public relations support reach beyond the immediate market. 65% of our artists and crafters return every year.
The City of DeLand from 2013-2014 spent 5.5 million dollars to beautifully renovate Earl Brown Park with a new Wayne Sanborn Activity Center, Amphi-theater, concessions and beautiful landscaping.
