Artists, crafters, hobbyists UNITE against White Tent Art Shows
The 23rd Annual Springfest Garden Art & Faerie Festival will transform Gulfport’s Clymer Park into an “enchanted village” inhabited by costumed faeries, sprites, gnomes, ogres and trolls on Friday, April 14 & Sunday, April 15, 2017. Renaissance-era characters and gypsies may be spotted strolling through the 7.5-acre greenspace along with minstrels, wizards and roving entertainers during the event that runs from 10 AM to 8 PM both days.
Springfest, hosted by the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce, provides family friendly activities and entertainment, including for the first time ever, a Good Friday Fish Fry and exciting carnival rides all weekend long! Favorite activities, for example the captivating May pole dances, the delightful faerie house competition, the charming costume contests and live music, will be returning. A children’s area offers adorable activities including face painting, pixie dusting, bubble blowing, and more. An engaging market brings a wide variety of products, such as plants, garden art, Renaissance-period trinkets, clothing, jewelry, art, hand-made crafts, food, beverages and other items of whimsical interest.
As always, there are no admission or parking fees, well-behaved and leashed pets are welcome and complimentary trolley rides to and from off-site parking areas are available.
