Art Festival in Downtown Clermont
CLERMONT, FLORIDA – Fine Artists and Artisans are coming from all over the state of Florida to participate and be a part of Downtown Clermont’s Fall Art Festival. The stunning collection of fine art work exhibited at the Clermont Art Festival, November 6th & 7th, 2010 will delight the most sophisticated, fine arts patrons.
The Annual Clermont Art Festival is evidence that our community welcomes', supports and values the arts and the gifted artists that participate, which is due to the consistent quality of artwork exhibited for sale at the Clermont Art Festival.
Many artists will be on display in the areas of oils, clay, graphics, photography, watercolor, acrylics, glass, jewelry, sculpture, mixed media and more. The Clermont Art Festival also features live entertainment, food and a kid’s art area. Admission is free.
Clermont is located approximately 30 miles west of Orlando, via Florida’s Turnpike or Hwy 50. Historic Downtown Clermont is just blocks away from the shores of Lake Minneola, head west on Hwy 50 to 7th or 8th street and there will be ample parking available downtown.
First United Methodist Church is providing homemade BBQ and comfort food favorites! Downtown restaurants will also be open during our event such as Lyn’s Deli & Ice Cream Shop, Cheeser’s Palace, and Sugar Mama’s Bake Shoppe.
Our children’s area will include Dance Performances by Not Just Dance, Ceramic Arts & Crafts painting with Plaster Cottage, and a Face Painting booth. Our event will be fun for the whole family and is very kid friendly. Along with food and fun there will also be live actors in costume from Moonlight Players Theater interacting with the crowd during the festival to promote their upcoming show.
