Maitland Art Festival – 35th Annual Maitland Rotary Art Festival Maitland FL

A beautiful sunny day for the Maitland Art Fair. This is an annual fair every October around Lake Lily in Lake Lily Park in Maitland, Florida. The fair started on Friday night and continues through Sunday at 5 p.m.  The art fair includes close to 250 exhibiting artists of  fine crafts, graphics and drawings, jewelry and metalwork, mixed media, paintings,  photography, pottery, and sculpture.  Music is in the air at two stages Friday night, all day and night on Saturday and on Sunday till 5 p.m.  This includes the Maitland Stage Band, Maitland Symphony Orchestra, Maitland String Quartet, Orlando Brass Quintet and about twenty other musical acts of different genres.

Some of the artists have exhibited here before but many are new  to the fair.  Among the artists whose exhibits I enjoyed were Out On a Whim, Ken Jensen Pottery, Matter of Woodwork and Jim Casey Sculptures. Many of the artists are local to Central Florida or to greater Florida but other artists are from all over the country.

If you can’t make it to the fair this weekend put this on your calendar for next October.  The weather is usually sunny and warm, the artwork visually appealing, the music delightful and there is food, wine and beer that can be purchased too.
