56th Annual Apopka Art and Foliage Festival

Posted on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 1:16 am

The “Crazy Hat Committee” of the Apopka Woman’s Club has been busy creating recycled decorated hats to sell at the Apopka Art and Foliage Festival on April 29th and 30th at the Kit Land Nelson Park in Apopka.
The bases of the hats are covered in colorful newspaper and then the creativity begins, using artificial flowers, feathers, beads, leaves, fringe, ribbons, net and lots of glue. Most everything used to create the hats is donated. A hat can take forty five minutes to one hour to make so each hat is a real bargain at $3.00 each.
Stop by the “Crazy Hat” Booth and find the one that is just perfect for you.
The annual festival showcases the work of more than 100 juried artisans and crafters. In addition, 22 of the top foliage growers from Central Florida will bring a large variety of plants for purchase.
There will be entertainment, food, children’s activities and bus tours to local nurseries. Pets are not permitted in the park by city ordinance. All proceeds are distributed to deserving charitable organizations in Apopka.
