The 3rd Annual St. Augustine Makers Fest will be held at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 9, 2018. Presented by the Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, the festival is a showcase of works by "makers" of all kinds in St. Augustine, with live entertainment and activities for the whole family.
The Makers Fest features the work of over 40 local and regional artisans, artists, chefs, brewers, musicians, dancers, and performers. There will be vendors on site with goods for sale, as well as food and drink. This year, there will be new Makers Stations, as well as some favorites from past years, grouped into Paper World, Textile World, and Nature World. There will also be a number of children's activities, including a Gingerbread Forest play area.
Workshops will be available as well, including a Watercolor Workshop with Lemonlark Paperie, where participants will have the chance to paint a wreath in whatever style they like and also in a range of sizes. This workshop will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and costs $35.00 (which includes the price of admission to the festival). Call (702) 343-3129 for more information about the Watercolor Workshop.
Local musicians will provide entertainment during the festival, and a silent auction will be held to benefit the St. Augustine Public Montessori School.
