Anna Maria Island’s Winterfest 2010

Click here for Winterfest 2012!

This year’s Winterfest had over 100 artists, southern style comfort food, live Cajun and Blue Grass music.  Saturday was a beautiful sunny day with a bit of winter chill in the air, we showed up at about 11:00 A.M. and were graciously greeted by the volunteers who were selling tickets, water, and soda at the entrance.  Winterfest was underway, the band was playing, and people were browsing the art exhibits.

This year’s Winterfest had an amazing showcase of jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography, and sculptures.  But my favorite was the Wildlife, Inc Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. They had the most beautiful hawks and owls on display in their booth.  I actually had to take a closer look to realize that they were alive.

Winterfest is hosted by the Anna Maria Island Art League in Holmes Beach City Hall Park every year in December.  For more information on This Year’s Holiday Events, and Anna Maria Island information, contact an Anna Maria Island Vacation Rental Specialist or follow us on Facebook.
