In only its sixth year, the Annual Rockledge Art and Craft Show has quickly become a community favorite. Spanning two full days over the last weekend in January, the show draws in excess of 60 art, craft and gift vendors from throughout the country, as well as a tremendous number of spectators. Traditionally on Saturday afternoon, the show is paired with the Cruise-On-In Car Show, where over 100 classic and muscle cars line the eastbound lanes of Barton Boulevard in the core of the Barton Boulevard Redevelopment Sub-District.
The show also features music, a food court, and the “Chairman’s Choice” award, named for and selected by the Chairman of the Redevelopment Agency Board of Commissioners, for the best overall booth display.
Merchants offer a wide array of items for sale, including everything from hand-crafted jewelry and unique artwork to homemade sauces and confections. As this event continues to evolve and grow, the City and Agency staff persist in making improvements and fine tuning the details based on feedback received from the show’s exhibitors and the attendees.
