Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival is BACK and here to STAY!


American Craft Endeavors is excited to announce that The 14th Annual Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival will be returning on it’s original October date and downtown core location. We have been working hard with the Chamber of Commerce and The City for this comeback and they are 100% behind us in keeping the original dates and location. The Festival will take place October 27th & 28th, 2012 on the streets of Lauderdale by the Sea at The A1A and Commercial Blvd. We hope you are as thrilled as we are to be back at this amazing venue! We look forward  to seeing all our loyal festival-goers there and encourage all crafters to apply!

Please note: The Coconut Creek show that was originally scheduled on this date has now been cancelled.



Howard Alan Events Schedule Change Announcement


There have been some exciting new changes made

to the Fall Art Festival schedule.

The 4th Annual Coconut Point Fall Art Fair in Estero, FL that was scheduled to take place on November 17th & 18th, 2012 was moved to December 29th & 30th, 2012 in the same location. This is now taking place on New Year’s Weekend, which is a very busy weekend for Coconut Point and a great time around the holidays for visitors! This is also the same weekend we had the show last year, and it was a very successful show.
Howard Alan Events is proud to announce we will be back in Jacksonville to produce The San Marco Art Festival on November 17th & 18th, 2012. We are excited to be back in Jacksonville! The show will be set up downtown on San Marco Boulevard. We hope you will join us on one or BOTH of these great weekends!


2nd Annual Coconut Point New Years Weekend Art Festival

December 29th & 30th, 2012

The Coconut Point shops are the center of focus for a 500-acre, master planned community that is more than a shopping center in Estero, FL. With over 100 stores and 25 restaurants, all surrounding several acres of lakes with a boardwalk, these shops are an excellent location where thousands of visitors gather for shopping, dining and entertainment!

The San Marco Art Festival (Jacksonville, FL)

November 17th & 18th, 2012

We are excited to be back in San Marco for another great Art Festival, set up in the heart of downtown on San Marco Boulevard. Jacksonville is a busy city with shops, restaurants and upscale merchants. This Art savvy town is the perfect place for an art festival.  We look forward to seeing you there in the fall!

The Coconut Creek Spring Craft Festival at the Promenade


The Coconut Creek Spring Craft Festival at the Promenade

 March 10th & 11th, 2012

 Saturday & Sunday 10am – 5pm

We are excited to return to The Promenade at Coconut Creek, an open air high-end shopping and dining experience. Coconut Creek is located north of Coral Springs and just South of wealthy Boca Raton.  The upscale streets of the Promenade provide us with a fabulous venue to exhibit your fine crafts.  The location at the busy intersection of Wiles and Lyons Road will give us ample exposure, adding to our already large media plan. Art and craft enthusiasts will enjoy this fun, family friendly festival, while experiencing Coconut Creek’s upscale retail and dining destination.  We moved the location from Lauderdale by the Sea after we were forced to relocate that show to a less than ideal location, we then decided to move the show to Promenade at Coconut Creek to ensure another amazing American Craft Endeavors Festival.  We look forward to seeing our Fine Crafters at the Coconut Creek Spring Craft Festival at the Promenade.  Like our Facebook Page to stay updated on news, specials and event info from American Craft Endeavors.
