30th Annual Riverwalk Arts Festival to break the mold

Published on March 01, 2018 with No Comments

The Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Foundation’s (SRACF) expectations for this weekend’s festival are great says Toni New, the foundation’s president. She said the mold will be broken.

The event is this weekend March 3 and 4 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. in downtown Milton along Willing Street and the Riverwalk area. For more information call SRACF at 983-1100 or visit their website at sracf.org. Don’t forget to like them on Facebook.

The festival has expanded in many ways this year, according to New. She said they’ve added two more stages for performances and increased the number of local bands to play throughout the event, plus they have around 80 vendors the most they’ve ever had to participate in recent history. Plus, they’ve increased the space for Kid’s Art displays and have many activities for children. “It’s a great place to bring the family.”

The foundation increased the use of social media advertising and also increased their regional advertising to reach more people in the tri-state area. They believe this increase will bring more to their signature event.

She said there will also be a unique local display to be officially unveiled at the festival.

“The TDC (Tourism Development Council) sea turtle, painted to honor all branches of the military and to be located in downtown Milton, will be on display Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the information booth at the Veteran’s Memorial Plaza. We hope everyone will take a moment to come and see this remarkable turtle,” said New.

“Everyone with the SRACF has given their time and effort to make our 30th Riverwalk Arts Festival a success. If it weren’t for all of the support we’ve received from our event sponsors, the Santa Rosa County School System and the city of Milton we couldn’t do this every year. We increased our event to make it a memorable success,” said New.
