From the GFWC Apopka Woman’s Club
Tomorrow from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm., The Kit Land Nelson Park in downtown Apopka will be turned into an outdoor art gallery.
Approximately 75 entries of juried fine arts and creative handcrafts will fill the park for the 58th Annual Apopka Art and Foliage Festival. Artists from all areas will converge in Apopka to feature their paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculptures, and much more at the two-day outdoor festival. Budding artists from local schools will also have the opportunity to display their works of art.
Bring your families for a stroll through the park and see why Apopka is known as the “Foliage Capital of the World”. Over fifteen local nurseries will be on site to help you select the perfect plants for your home and garden. You can also hop on one of our buses and take a first-hand tour of working nurseries and see where Apopka’s world famous foliage is grown.
Bring an appetite and enjoy delicious food while being entertained by a variety of musicians. Children can spend time catching butterflies in a netted tent, get their faces painted and do a craft.
The festival is sponsored by the GFWC Apopka Woman’s Club and the City of Apopka. Revenue from the event goes to about 22 local non-profit charities and provides scholarships for Apopka students. Admission to the festival is FREE. No pets are allowed per city ordinance. For further information, see www.apopkaartandfoliagefestival.org.
