This is the 54th Old Florida Celebration of the Arts, also known as the Cedar Key Fine Arts Festival. Dave and Louise Hetzel will staff the WWALS booth at a big event in a small town in the Suwannee River Estuary, Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25, 2018.

A good option — one popular with the visiting artists — are two camping and RV parks about six miles outside of town. At Rainbow Country RV Campground, tent camping is $23 and no reservation is required. RV hookups are $23 to $24 and reservations are recommended. The new Cedar Key RV Resort is $30 a night and includes resort amenities such as a swimming pool.
Be patient with traffic and parking. This is a small town with a lot of visitors for art festival weekend. Visitors park along the town’s streets and if the festival is a big success, you’ll walk four or five blocks through town to reach it.
