Join over artists, crafters, photographers and jewelers behind the Tamarac Community Center for the 2nd Annual Tamarac Arts and Crafts Festival April 1 and 2.
After a huge success at last year’s Tamarac Arts & Crafts Festival, this year features an outstanding selection of local and visiting artists including: painting, clay, sculpture, glass, wood, jewelry and more. All artists will be on hand to display their original works of art.
In addition to art, there will be artisans selling their crafts, such as, homemade soaps, lotions, soy candles, and jams, all-natural skin care and even art for your lawn.
Also, there will be cultural entertainment on stage with 15 plus performances from all ethnic backgrounds, non-profit organizations and aspiring future superstars will entertain throughout the day. While at the show, be sure to visit the giant coloring book by artist Alejandra Abad and a spontaneous pop-up artist both sponsored by Tamarac Public Art.
In addition to the giant coloring book, our children’s area will also host interactive art stations by Tamarac Buddhist Temple and EZ-Art, great time for the family to enjoy the festival.
Enjoy food trucks, frozen drinks, and kettle korn – along with a water bottle fundraiser by BSO Explorers. This free event is designed to bring the community together through arts and culture.
