Downtown St. Pete Art Fest Hosted at Baywalk

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (December 27th, 2007) –  The red carpet is being rolled out to make room for the Inaugural Downtown St. Petersburg Art Fest at BayWalk, near Straub & Vinoy parks.  The entertainment hot spot for shopping and nightlife will be the backdrop to this year’s art festival, which takes place on Saturday, January 5th & Sunday, January 6th, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.   The event is free.

“It’s a great way to start the year in St. Petersburg, since we have such a thriving art community. We’re the unofficial town center for Downtown, so it’s appropriate for an event like this to be showcased at our front door. ” said Amber Overby, spokesperson for BayWalk.

More than 200 local and national artists will transform the central business district into an outdoor art gallery.  Local and national artists were chosen by an independent panel of judges before they were given the thumbs-up to show off their work.  “We’re very proud to be hosting this event, which brings artisans and craftsmen from all over the country,” said Howard Alan, producer of the festival, as well as many other top shows nationwide. “Everything is original and handmade and all made in America,” adds Alan.
