Winter Haven, FL March 3rd, 2017- The Ridge Art Association is pleased to announce the 39th Annual Victor Smith Law Group Central Park Arts Festival will be returning to beautiful downtown Winter Haven on March 18th & 19th.

The festival, which has become a cultural mainstay for the community, is a juried competition festival featuring fine art from accomplished artists hailing from both within Central Florida and beyond. This two day event showcases paintings, sculptures, mixed media art work, hand crafted jewelry, artisan glass crafts, wood carving and more. Prizes totaling $8,500 will be awarded to the winning artists as well as purchase awards.

In addition to one of a kind fine art work for purchase, the festival will also feature live entertainment both days including Comedian & Stunt Artist David Ferman of America’s Got Talent fame and many others. A Hands-On art center, present by Polk State College, has been curated especially for kids, and a collection of art work from local young artists will be on display. Also back by popular demand this year- food trucks from local vendors such as Tallulah’s Table by the Sea, Sawadee Thai, Laughing Crab and craft and domestic beers from Bernie Little in the festival’s beer garden.

Come join us in celebrating these artists and enjoy an afternoon in Winter Haven’s newly revitalized and ever expanding Downtown District on Saturday March 18th and Sunday March 19th from 10am until 4pm.
