The festival takes place in the heart and soul of Winter Park… Hannibal Square; Hannibal Square community is located three blocks west of Park Ave and has become a revitalized leisure destination for local residents and out-of-town visitors. Established in 2007 by Crealdé School of Art, the Hannibal Square Heritage Center pays tribute, to the past, present and future contributions of West Winter Park’s African American community through a permanent collection of historic photographs, oral histories and public art.
This is a free event held outdoors on the grounds surrounding the Hannibal Square Heritage Center. The festival highlights our community of emerging visual artists and their art-work; a full line-up of live entertainment to include: African drumming and storytelling, Cajun and Zydeco Music by The Porch Dogs. A pottery wheel demonstration by Crealde’s Artist, free children’s Vejigantes Mask-Making Workshop and Parade, along with soul food vendors.
Hannibal Square Heritage Center Folk & Urban Art Festival is a non-juried show and is open to artists by selection with no entry fee. Artists are responsible for their sales. Crealdé School of Art will collect a 30 percent commission from festival sales at the end of the day, which will be used to further programming at the nonprofit Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
