Hobe Sound will celebrate the landmark twentieth anniversary of the Hobe Sound Festival of the Arts on February 6 and 7. The free annual event will feature hundreds of fine art and craft displays, arranged along Old Dixie Highway (11954 SE Dixie Hwy), live music, and food. Due to the current COVID-19 concerns, however, additional safety precautions will be in place. Guests are welcome to stop by the festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days and are encouraged to reserve a preferred time via Eventbrite.
Residents and visitors are invited to stroll among life-size sculptures, spectacular paintings, one-of-a-kind jewels, photography, ceramics, and more from the artists who are on site to discuss their inspirations and processes for each hand-made work. Parking is free and pets on leashes are welcome.
To maintain visitor safety, attendees ages 2 years and older are required to wear a mask while attending the festival. Entrances and exits will be monitored for one-way traffic. Social-distancing will be required between artists and patrons, as well as between patron groups.
The Hobe Sound Festival of the Arts is hosted by the Hobe Sound Chamber and produced by Howard Alan Events (HAE), producer of the nation’s finest juried art shows. The Hobe Sound Festival of the Arts represents original artwork, handmade in America and selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process also ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the Festival. Craft artisans, selected through American Craft Endeavors (ACE) offer affordable, original and practical works including a full green market of edible and living ornamental items.
