The Hannibal Square Heritage Center will host its 12th annual Folk & Urban Art Festival presented by the Crealdé School of Art this Saturday, April 24, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The event will celebrate local artists and Central Florida’s diverse cultural groups through education and entertainment, or “edutainment,” as the Center puts it.
The event will consist of displays from local artists Joyce Hayes, Julio Sanchez-Julsan, Weldon Ryan, Genevieve DeMarco, and Richlin Ryan. Locals can expect entertainment during the event, including live storytelling, a quilting display, and a soulful music performance. Activities for children, such as the Kid-Folk Art Workshop with the Orlando Kiddies Carnival, will be available for children ages five and up to design a carnival headdress and armbands to showcase during the Kiddies Parade, which will occur at noon.
Admission is free of charge for the festival, which will take place at 642 West New England Avenue in Winter Park. Attendees will be required to wear a mask during the event, and social distancing will be encouraged by festival organizers. Virtual participation will also be available via Facebook Live.
