Calling all art lovers, computer wizards and anyone interested in three days of creativity and family fun.

The Playalinda Festival of the Arts will feature multiple venues where visitors can experience juried art shows, interactive technology, live performances and independent films.

“It is a collaborative effort between several established organizations,” said Dr. Michael John Foster, who is chairman of the event. “The Greater Titusville Renaissance, of which I am a part, is providing infrastructure and organization, while partners such as FabLab and The North Brevard Art League are providing engaging experiencing for our guests.”

The festival will be held February 2 to 4 at Titus Landing Lifestyle Center at U.S.1 and Harrison Street in Titusville. Admission is free, except for the films.

“The festival encourages attendance and engagement for artists of all ages, with activities for children sponsored by area artists,” according to the Greater Titusville Renaissance.

Visitors can look forward to a talented lineup that will include:

• World-class musicians such as Jared Burnett from Cirque du Soleil or Rodney Ailen from Matchbox 20.

• Exhibitions of work by professional painters and sculptors, hosted by the North Brevard Art League.

• Compelling stories captured by the lens of Florida filmmakers.

• Emerging technologies by FabLab to explore and discover.

•  The inspiring sounds of Brevard County’s Association of Gospel Choirs.

• A showcase of talented dancers and musicians.

Foster spoke of the festival’s significance to Titusville’s economy.

“North Brevard has been slow to recover from the 2008 housing bubble,” he said. He attributed this to the area’s singular reliance on the space shuttle project.

“However, the area has been going through a bit of a renaissance due to the efforts of local leaders and business people,” he said. “The Playalinda Festival of the Arts is one of those efforts. It highlights the many local talented artists and performers. Our hope is that guests will come away inspired to express their own talent, seeing opportunities for entertainment, collaboration and growth that Titusville and its surrounding areas can offer.”
