A new art and craft experience begins April 17-18, 2021 in City Marketplace Park with the premiere of the Punta Gorda Spring Craft Show. For your enjoyment will be a unique marketplace of original handmade arts and crafts, items that will beautify your home and workplace and provide those special gifts for family and friends. The event is produced by Paragon Festivals. Admission is FREE! Hours are 10am–5pm both Saturday and Sunday.

The work found in this art and craft marketplace is created and produced by the artisans and crafters journeying to the event from throughout Florida and across the United States. Talk with the artisans as you explore their creations in such mediums as painting, sculpture, jewelry, glass and ceramics, photography, fiber and wearable art to mixed-media, metalwork, woodworking and more. If you do not find exactly what you want, consider commissioning a piece to be made just for you!

While at the event, please find a moment to stop by the HSSC's Big Mac mobile adoption center onsite. Meet their dedicated and compassionate staff and say “hi” to their family of friends awaiting adoption. Who knows - perhaps you will find a new Life Companion. They are waiting to meet you!
