Have you started your holiday shopping yet? You’re cutting it pretty close! Well, whether you’re in the Jacksonville area already or you’re looking for an excuse to shop somewhere other than a stressful, crowded, indoor mall, head on over to the next great Howard Alan Event and celebrate with us the San Marco Art Festival!

Turtles Dan Goad

San Marco’s Second Year

San Marco is a culturally rich neighborhood with great shops and superb restaurants, located just southeast of downtown Jacksonville. Its beautiful architecture and hefty historical and cultural history make it the ideal host for one of our latest art festivals. With over 100 participating artists showcasing their art and selling a variety of unique, original and eclectic creations, the San Marco Art Festival is a perfect opportunity to find those holiday gifts you’ve been having a hard time finding. From paintings and sculptures to handcrafted jewelry and glass, you will be sure to find that special something for that special someone at the right budget.

Plus, as with every past show, festival patrons have the opportunity to win something for free and this time it’s a limited edition original glicee titled “Turtles” by Dan Goad worth $200. Patrons can stop by Goad’s booth and enter the giveaway until 4 p.m. on Sunday, when the drawing will take place. There is no purchase necessary to enter, but you definitely must be onsite to win, so make sure you attend!
