Avenue Viera Craft Festival

Date/Time

Description

Metal sculptures, homemade dips and sauces, one-of-a-kind paintings, hand-painted clothing and more artisan creations will once again fill The Avenue® Viera from October 14 - 15 during the Fall return of The Avenue® Viera Craft Festival.  The free, outdoor event brings together the state’s top craft artisans to the popular lifestyle shopping center for a two day, made-in-the-USA artistic celebration.

Presented by American Craft Endeavors (ACE), Florida’s longest established craft festival producer, unique and affordable arts and crafts will be showcased in the open-air, pedestrian friendly setting. The craft festival is pet friendly for leashed animals, and includes a full greenmarket of live plants, handmade soaps, delicious edibles and more. Leather works, customized collectibles, practical and whimsical works of all price ranges will be available for purchase. Each artisan is on-site during the entire festival, allowing patrons to meet and to discover the techniques and inspirations behind each piece as they sample and shop from the gallery-style booths.

“We are thrilled to bring the craft festival back this fall to The Avenue® Viera,” says the Center’s General Manager Scott McCarthy. “The high-quality, artisan-created works serve as a wonderful complement to the Center’s own dynamic mix of local and premier retail offerings. It also serves as a wonderful, family-friendly event for our local community to enjoy.”
