Celebrate Floridiana Festival



Celebrate Floridiana Festival 

  The “Floridiana Festival & Highwaymen Artist Show” returns to the historic Palladium Theatre on Sunday, February 24th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Celebrate Florida’s cultural and historical legacy - and meet the Florida Highwaymen artists - at this eclectic antiques and collectibles show! From vintage Weeki Wachee mermaid memorabilia and souvenirs from long-closed roadside attractions, to oodles of fun old Florida ephemera and tropical treasures, kitschy-kool rules! “Tropicalize” your home with vintage rattan accent pieces, or perhaps pick up some retro Aloha shirts from the racks of hundreds.

   The legendary Florida Highwaymen artists will be participating too, showing and selling their iconic Florida land and seascape paintings. Meet and mingle with James Gibson, Issac Knight, R.L. Lewis, Carnell Smith and Roy McLendon Sr.  Another special feature on February 24th will be complimentary valuations (with paid admission) of your vintage Florida paintings - including that of the Highwaymen - by an appraiser and expert in the field. If you’re not sure what your old Florida art is worth, or who the artist is, bring your paintings along!
