3 To Do: Arts, jazz and fight night
1. Goodland/Sunday: 5th Annual Outdoor Members’ Arts & Crafts Fair
As Goodland continues its arduous recovery from Hurricane Irma, the village is definitely open for business, and for the Goodland Arts Alliance: It’s showtime!
Despite wide-spread damage and loss, this plucky community is anxious to show the world what can be achieved when you are Goodland Strong! The GAA, along with Collier County Parks and Recreation, is sponsoring its 5th Annual Outdoor Members’ Arts & Crafts Fair from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 28, at MarGood Harbor Park in Goodland. The event coincides with Goodland’s world-famous Mullet Festival.
Talented members of the GAA gather to support the organization’s mission to “preserve, promote, and advance the cultural presence in the historic fishing village of Goodland through art, history, and education.”
The venue, MarGood Harbor Park, holds well-documented historic and environmental significance. Today native landscaping and lovely walkways wrap around a charming harbor-front. The park also features a museum/interpretive center, two open-air pavilions, and kayak launch.
Support this hard-hit community, enjoy the arts, live music, and good eats!
