Hyde Park Village is one of our favorite places on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Located near the shores of Hillsborough Bay, Hyde Park Village boasts beautiful shops, delectable restaurants and entertainment for the whole family. This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, March 22-23 from 10-5, Howard Alan Events presents another first-rate art festival featuring some of the most talented artists in the country as well as entertainment, food and fun for the whole family at the 25th Annual Hyde Park Village Art Fair.
Need a few reasons to visit Hyde Park Village this weekend? Here are three good ones:
You’ll meet artists from all over Florida and the U.S. Our artists are hand-picked from hundreds of applications to receive spots in our shows. We look for artists that reflect work found in some of the best art spots and galleries today. There is no shortage of unique, eclectic pieces here, and there is no shortage of affordable art for those who love collecting but don’t necessarily have a collector’s budget. And with free admission for everyone, you and your family can save some money while having fun.
You’ll have the chance to win with our Featured Art Giveaway. This weekend, as with every other HAE show, one lucky patron will have the chance to win a great piece from a celebrated Howard Alan Events artist. This time around, Mark Pericot, talented photographer and our featured artist for this show, is giving away a gorgeous piece entitled “Promenade dans la Vieille Ville”, a photograph taken in the French Riviera. Mark’s fascination with architectural and historical details led him to choose a unique niche as a photography subject: Doors of the World. This has allowed him to travel all over in search of ideal subjects to include in his photography.
You’ll get to explore the nooks and crannies in this vibrant Florida city. Hyde Park Village, located in Tampa, is just one of many local attractions you can experience when you visit this weekend’s art festival. Turn your visit to the Hyde Park Village Art Fair into the ultimate mini-vacation! Take some time to visit Channelside, where you’ll find the gorgeous Florida Aquarium. Spend some time getting to know Tampa’s most beautiful and well-known downtown landmark, the Henry B. Plant Museum, now home to the University of Tampa. Check out the wild critters at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. You can even travel to nearby Clearwater or St. Petersburg for some good old fun in the sun. There is something for everyone at the Hyde Park Village Art Fair … and beyond.
