El Sol’s Annual ArtFest is set to return on Sunday, November 2 at 12PM. ArtFest 2014, presented by Community Foundation, is Jupiter’s premier cultural event that highlights the folkloric and colorful art of Guatemalan, Mexican, and other Latin American artists in South Florida. ArtFest is a 4-hour celebration that attracts over 1,000 people and features musical acts, cultural dances, and delicious food from food trucks, the El Sol Workers’ Council, and vegan/vegetarian options from the Sunshine Organic Community Garden.
ArtFest 2014 is the perfect place to get an early start on holiday shopping. Vendors will be selling art, photography, handmade crafts and jewelry. Crowd favorites like Pedro Chavajay, Ines Evangelista, and El Sol Sews will be at the event. A call to vendors has been announced. Application deadline is on September 30th.
The ArtFest 2014 theme, “My Roots, Mis Raices,” is a testament to each individual’s family tree and their genealogical roots. “We are all immigrants or descendants of immigrants, which is especially noted in Palm Beach County’s diverse population,” said David Urieta, VISTA Outreach Coordinator, who will be chairing this year’s event.
ArtFest 2014 will include an ArtFest Preview Night on Saturday, November 1 at 6PM in the Sunshine Organic Community Garden. Preview Night will be an intimate setting for art enthusiasts, art collectors, and community supporters to preview the art of El Sol artisans. There will be wine from District Bar & Table, beer from Tequesta Brewery Co, appetizers, raffles, and live music.
