Winter craft festival returns to Titusville’s Fox Lake Park

Many of vendors will be offering their crafts and culinary delights at the Fox Lake Winter Festival of Crafts.

Those looking for a unique handmade creation, Christmas gift, decoration or edible craft might find it at the Fox Lake Winter Festival of Crafts. 

The annual Festival of Crafts, hosted by the Brevard County North Area Parks and Recreation, will take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21 at Fox Lake Park at 4400 Fox Lake Road in Titusville.

The popular festival attracts up to 10,000 attendees each year. It will host 144 craft and food vendors. 

The community is invited for a leisurely day of browsing, munching and supporting area craftsmen.

"Crafts will include homemade jewelry, wood crafts, metal crafts, crocheted items, art and more," said Annette Devlin, the coordinator of the Sandrift Community Center.

Food trucks also will be part of the festival.

"Everyone enjoys a tasty snack," Recreation Leader Erika Whitt said. "In addition to baked goods, there will be lots of treats you can’t find in the store."

Attendees will have the opportunity to take on a nature walk in Fox Lake Park. They might even spot wildlife in the area.

"Although it might be too noisy during the festival to spot much wildlife, on quiet days, raccoons, eagles, deer, alligators and other wildlife can be sighted." Devlin said.

Whitt also spoke of wild boars, turtles, nonvenomous black racer snakes and birds such as osprey and gray heron.

"The craft fair, the food and nature’s beauty; there are so many things to enjoy in one day," Whitt said.
