Carolyn Smith, Realtor – Things to do in Brevard County, Florida: Mark Your Calendar for This Year’s Melbourne Art Festival, April 28 & 29, 2012!

Melbourne Art Show 2012

The Melbourne Art Show is held annually in Historic Downtown Melbourne, Florida, and this year’s show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 28 & 29. Festival hours will be from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm on both days. The Melbourne Art Festival is a nationally recognized event featuring over 250 of the finest artists in the country. There will be a huge variety of high quality, handmade art that will appeal to many different tastes and budgets.

The Melbourne Art Festival will be set up along New Haven Avenue in Historic Downtown Melbourne. During the two days of the Art Show, New Haven Avenue is closed to vehicular traffic, so patrons can comfortably stroll down the street, browsing the artists’ tents and booths. The 250 juried artists will be displaying their paintings, photography, pottery, graphics, jewelry, sculpture, and more on both sides of the street, including some of the side streets, so there will be plenty of arts and crafts to keep you browsing all morning or afternoon.

Admission to the Melbourne Art Festival is free, and parking is plentiful. You can test your luck and try to find parking in the Downtown Melbourne area, or you can take advantage of the free Park & Ride shuttle transportation that will be offered both days. Buses will run continuously starting at 8:00 am until 6:00 pm, and will be available at Sears Plaza in Melbourne (SW corner of Nasa & Babcock) or the Indialantic Shopping Center (shopping center where Long Doggers is located, but Park & Ride pickup will be at the southern end of the shopping center). The shuttle will drop you off right in Downtown Melbourne so you can start enjoying the Art Show right away… so easy!

The annual Melbourne Art Festival is one of those can’t miss “Things to do in Brevard County, FL”.
