42nd Santa Fe College Spring Arts Festival — a Celebration of Spring!

The SF Spring Arts Festival, April 9-10, is well into its fourth decade as a Florida favorite. It’s North Central Florida’s longest running arts festival, drawing top quality artists from more than 25 states. There’s something to suit all tastes, with sculpture, printmaking, painting, 2-D and 3-D mixed media, jewelry, photography, drawing, watercolor, wood, fiber, and glass represented.

Spring Arts is family friendly, with children’s activities, continuous entertainment on two stages, and international food. It all happens on historic NE 1st Street and the lawn of the Thomas Center in downtown Gainesville. Hours are 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9 and noon-5:30 p.m. Sunday, April 10 rain or shine. Admission is free.

“We expect more than 100,000 visitors,” said Lehman. “This is a true community event in Gainesville and shows our cultural richness.”

Spring Arts was voted Florida’s best arts and crafts festival by readers of Florida Monthly magazine in 2008 and has been recognized as one of the top 20 events by the Southeast Tourism Society.
