Weekend Festivals | Things to Do in Brevard County, FL | Carolyn Smith, Realtor

Carolyn Smith, Realtor – Things to Do in Brevard County, FL: Lots of Festivals Scheduled for This Weekend In/Around Brevard County, Florida!

It’s a great time of year for those of us in Brevard County, FL! The weather is perfect, the beaches are gorgeous, and there are so many fun things to do on the weekends! My last post was about the Taste, Toast, and Tunes Concert scheduled for this weekend in Melbourne Beach, but there are also some other great events happening that I wanted to make sure everyone knew about!

This is a “Beyond Brevard County” event, but for those of us in the southern portion of the county, it really isn’t too far, and personally I think it is worth the drive. Vero Beach’s Under the Oaks fine art and craft festival is being held this weekend, and actually opened today, Friday March 9th. The festival runs through Sunday, so you have plenty of time to make the short drive down to Vero Beach to check it out. I went today, and had a fabulous time browsing the tents, meeting various artists and craftsman, and viewing so many different types of art including sculpture, jewelry, pottery, word working, photography, paintings, and other creative crafts. Not only is the art top-notch, the setting is spectacular. The festival is held at Riverside Park, and the 200 artists are lined up under the old spanish-moss filled oak trees, which are not just picturesque, they provide the perfect amount of shade to make perusing the festival comfortable. Riverside Park is located directly on the Indian River, adjacent to the Vero Beach Museum of Art and the Riverside Theater. The festival will be open from 9am – 5pm on Saturday, and 10 am – 4 pm on Sunday, and parking and admission are free. I highly recommend taking the trip down to Vero Beach to check out the Under the Oaks art festival, I think you will enjoy yourself. The event’s website has additional details: Under the Oaks art festival
