On Saturday, April 26th, 9:00 am-5:00 pm and Sunday, April 27th, from 10:00 am-4:00 pm., The Kit Land Nelson Park in downtown Apopka will be turned into an outdoor art gallery as well over 100 booths of juried fine arts and creative handcrafts will fill the park for the 53rd Annual Apopka Art & Foliage Festival.
Artists from all over the country 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 be on hand 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 twenty local nurseries will be on site to help you select the perfect plants for your home. You can also hop on one of our buses and take a firsthand tour of working nurseries and see firsthand where Apopka's world famous foliage is grown.
Bring an appetite and enjoy delicious food from local vendors while being entertained by local musicians. Children can spend time catching butterflies in a netted tent, get their faces painted and even make a bird house.
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 organizations and provides scholarships for Apopka students. Admission to the festival is FREE. Parking is $5 and benefits local Boy Scouts of America Troops.
