Get Ready for the Granada Grand Festival of the Arts

Who doesn’t love a good art show? While people in Northern climates (and elsewhere across the country) are dealing with snow and inclement weather, residents and visitors in Central Florida are gearing up for some great family-friendly festivals.

That includes the Granada Grand Festival of the Arts in Ormond Beach. Started in 2014, this outdoor art show and sale has become a perennial favorite. While you might remember it as a September event, artists and community leaders agreed to move the program to February, when temperatures are cooler.

The event attracts people from across the area and even internationally. New and returning patrons attest they can always find something interesting to see and buy. Read on to learn more about the program, and how you can involve the whole family this year.

A Brief History

Festival organizers say the event has grown with each passing year. In 2018, more than 50 artists delighted crowds not only with their visual displays, but also live demonstrations and workshops. Officials say there will be even more vendors this year. The program in 2019 is slated for Saturday, February 02. This one-day event starts at 10:00 a.m. and runs through 6:00 p.m.

Sponsored by the Ormond Beach Mainstreet, the Granada Grand Festival of the Arts is part of the overall community outreach and involvement strategy of the Ormond Arts District and the City of Ormond Beach.

In fact, the area is bustling with creative activity every day of the year. This commitment to fun and inclusive activities is part of the reason why more visitors to this and other events return to call Ormond Beach home all or part of the year.

What to Expect

Similar to other programs, this free, open-air event features arts and crafts from varied vendors throughout Florida and the nation. Festival organizers say more than 5,000 people attended last year.

Kids will appreciate the hands-on activities and opportunities to learn more about how they can create art every day. That includes chalk art, sand art, and more.

In addition to free admission and parking, there will also be live music and food trucks nearby where everyone in your party can find something tasty to eat. Wine and beer are also available for purchase. This way, you can relax, unwind, and celebrate lasting memories in the exciting and inclusive community of Ormond Beach.
