Historic Downtown Sebring’s Fine Arts & Crafts Festival

Saturday, November 7, 2020

9 am – 4 pm

For 53 years, this festival has provided a celebration of the arts and music in Central Florida! The Highlands Art League’s Fine Arts & Crafts Festival in Historic Downtown Sebring is one of Florida’s longest continuously running Art Festivals and the largest and most prestigious in the Sebring area.  It draws thousands of people to our charming downtown City on the Circle the first weekend in November to kick off the holiday shopping season.  
 
The Festival features more than 70 talented visual and performing artists, along with culinary offerings from local restaurants and mobile food vendors, an interactive Children’s Street, an Emerging Artist Scholarship Program and the popular Chamber of Commerce Street filled with non-art organizations and businesses from the local area. This year, our musical entertainment will be provided by Harry Havery of the California Toe Jam Band from 9:30 – 11:30 am and then another local favorite, Blackbird Anthem, will hit the stage around lunchtime! 
 
Mark your calendar to attend this upcoming festival at Historic Downtown Sebring’s Circle Park. Don’t pass up the opportunity to enjoy a free family-friendly event!  This year, we will implement hand sanitizer stations around the circle for the safety of our patrons and vendors.
