Granada Grand Festival Of The Arts

Saturday, February 3, 2018

The 4th Annual Granada Grand Festival of the Arts heads back to Downtown Ormond Beach with more artists, more activities and more music than ever before.The Festival has been a September event for the past three years, but artists and attendees alike voted for a move to a cooler winter month. Couple the great weather with local jazz and blues artists on stage, and you have what is sure to be the ‘coolest’ festival in town.

Ormond Beach MainStreet and the Ormond Beach Arts District will host this free art festival Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 from 10 AM – 5 PM behind the City Hall complex on South Beach Street.

More than 3000 visitors joined us last year. As you wander around the festival, you’ll surely get lost in a flurry of sights, sounds and smells. Interact with select artists as they conduct live demonstrations of their technique, then snag the perfect gift from one of more than 60 accomplished area artists selling unique, handcrafted pieces of work. Admire the work of our chalk artists. Grab a mouth-watering bite from a string of local food trucks, stroll with a glass of wine or beer in-hand or visit our Calypso lemonade stand.

On the main stage, local bands provide the sound track for the day, while student performances and dance groups take over a second stage. Even the smallest art-lover will stay entertained in our kid’s zone, hosting fun art projects for all ages, face painting and a bouncy house.

Frame of Mind Art will be bringing creative energy to the kid zone with craft projects and a people-powered spin art station along with a photo booth where kids (and adults) can ham and glam it up. For those who want to know more about how to DIY, five artists will be offering demonstrations throughout the Festival.

The Granada Grand Festival of the Arts is sponsored by Ormond Beach MainStreet and the Ormond Arts District as part of their mission to make downtown Ormond Beach a premier destination for residents and visitors to live, work and play.
