The Floyd Center for the Arts 23rd Annual Winterfest Arts & Crafts Festival will be held December 2 & 3, 2016, from 10AM to 5PM on Saturday and 11AM to 5PM on Sunday and features around 30 local artisans and vendors this year.
The first Winterfest was designed as a year-end showcase of local artisanship and creativity, in time for local residents’ holiday shopping, many of whom have always had a policy of buying locally made handcrafted gifts for friends and family. Twenty-three years later, Winterfest remains the best opportunity for shoppers to find a wide variety of handmade, local, unique gifts all offered at one place and close enough to Christmas to get some authentic gift buying done.
Back for the fourth year – Festival of Trees. The Art Center has partnered with the Floyd businesses and organizations to celebrate the holiday season and also encourage shoppers to visit local outlets for gifts, decorations, and food for the season. This year’s Festival of Trees has over 50 participating businesses. Each pre-decorated, tabletop holiday tree will be on display at Winterfest, with the final bidding for visitors to win a tree to take home for the holidays finishing at 4:30PM on Sunday, Dec 3. A complete list of participating businesses will be posted to this page once it is available.
The Art Café will again be a significant element of the offerings, full of homemade delicacies, soups, snacks, and more. A special FREE kids holiday activity is also planned, so make this a family fun weekend and join us! Organizers invite everyone to attend this longest-running, signature event and admission is free.
