North Central Florida’s premier fall festival of the arts, the 34th Annual Downtown Festival and Art Show, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, November 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The streets of historic downtown Gainesville, from City Hall to the Hippodrome State Theatre, will be transformed into a celebration of art and creativity, complete with live music, performing arts and a spectacular array of food.
Join us in welcoming 240 of the nation’s top artists as they display original oils and acrylics, vibrant watercolors, unique sculptures, dazzling jewelry, decorative ceramics and vivid photography.
For music lovers, the Festival features continuous entertainment on four stages by local bands and solo musicians including folk, jazz, country, pop and soul music as well as jazz, ballet, modern, and international dance performances.
The festival weekend kicks off with a free Downtown Blues Concert in Downtown Gainesville on Friday evening at 7 p.m. presented by the North Central Florida Blues Society and is open to the public.
