Island Fest returns to Islamorada on April 6 & 7, featuring a juried art show, live music, great food, classic cars and much more. The annual Islamorada Chamber of Commerce fundraiser, now in its 28th year, will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday at Founders Park, mile marker 87 bayside.
The arts and crafts show will feature approximately 100 artists whose works include everything from paintings and sculptures to jewelry, fine crafts and green market items.
Great food is also a mainstay during both days of Island Fest. The highlight will come Sunday at noon when the "Taste of Islamorada" competition brings out top local restaurants to show off their most mouthwatering dishes. Attendees will get to cast their ballot for the coveted People's Choice Award. The awards ceremony will take place at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Back at Island Fest this year is the All-American Road Vintage Cruisers Car Show, featuring antique cars, trucks, motorcycles and rat rods. The show will be visible from US-1, Florida's only official "All American Road," so passersby with an interest in antique and unique cars are likely to stop for a look. Awards will be presented for Coolest Cruiser, Raddest Rod, KeyZ Rider, Longest Haul, Big Kahuna, Funkiest Foreign, Best of Show and People's Choice. New entrants are always encouraged.
An array of popular musical acts appealing to lovers of numerous genres will perform throughout festival.
Island Fest offers lots of activities for kids as well. Children and child-like adults can help paint a life-sized dolphin statue, build sand castles and compete in hula hoop contests.
Admission to Island Fest is free and on-site parking is available for a $5 donation. Bring your own lawn chairs and blankets for a comfortable fun-filled day. Events will take place rain or shine. For more information, call the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce at 305.664.4503.
