Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival

2017 Dates:  February 11 & 12

Come join us in Placencia for the 14th Annual Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival and enjoy Belizean culture through a variety of mediums.

For over a decade the Placencia Sidewalk Arts Festival has brought together Belize’s top artists and those people, local and foreign, who appreciate the work they do so well. This year’s festival, through the sponsorship of Naïa Resort and Spa, will be adding a new dimension to the annual event.

“Art After Dark” is a gala dinner that is honouring six painters from the Placencia Peninsula who have left their mark on Belize’s cultural scene. Not only will attendees get to meet, dine and forge relationships with the honourees, Anton Leslie, Earnest Garcia, Greta Leslie, Lola Delgado plus Omar and Grayson Sierra, but will also be able to bid on their latest works in a silent auction.

Naïa invites you to join them on Saturday, February 11, at Naïa’s restaurant “1981” for what will certainly be a night of good food, good company and great art. Seating is limited so please purchase your tickets early so you won’t be left out.

One of the highlights of the Festival will be the demonstration of Maya chocolate making by Ixcacao on Saturday at 11:30am and 2:30pm under the main tent by the PVC Old Master Bar. Mayan Pride will be selling Mayan Cuisine such as tamales, corn tortillas with chicken caldo and corn tortillas with heart of palm. They will also have a booth selling plants and pottery.

Nationally and internationally known artists such as Walter Castillo, Gilvano Swasey, Pen Cayetano and Kelvin Baizar of Depiction Paintings will also be showing their work. Jack Dooley, Emmit Young, Allie’s Beach Worn Seaglass Jewelery, Tanisha Burgess and Kim Wedemeyer are just a few of the talented artists that will have booths. Also along the sidewalk are many jewelery, wood carvings and art shops.

The contest for the Placencia Lobsterfest artwork will take place on Saturday at 4pm at the Placencia Tourism Center booth, all artwork must be dropped off at their booth by noon on Saturday. The winner’s artwork might be used for the BTIA T-shirt and marketing if suitable.

On Sunday, after strolling the sidewalk, the Placencia Village Council is having a Sunday Funday at their bar sponsored by Old Master Rums starting at 1pm. Old Master will have their electronic bull riding challenge with prizes. Miss Deb’s food truck will be on hand with Baby Back Ribs as a special along with many other booths in the Food Court.

To register for your booth contact director@placencia.com or call 523-4045
