Orlando, FL — December 13, 2018
The Mennello Museum of American Art announces the fifth annual Indie-Folkfest presented by PLR Florida. This annual FREE, all ages event for people and their pets takes place February 16, 2019, from noon to 5 p.m. in the Mennello Museum Sculpture Garden which is located adjacent to the museum at 900 East Princeton Street.
Indie-Folkfest is the Mennello Museum’s signature outdoor event planned and presented by the Mennello Museum’s City-Appointed Board of Trustees and features local, regional and national art, music and cuisine as well as live music from some of Central Florida’s most notable musicians.
Shannon Fitzgerald, Mennello Museum Executive Director shares, “the event serves two purposes, it’s an opportunity for the Board of Trustees to be very hands on in raising funds for the museum’s education fund and it allows them to interact with the community by providing a free and engaging event to the community that highlights local food, art and music they may not experience otherwise.”
Throughout the afternoon event goers will have the opportunity to participate in raffles, purchase food, beverage and cocktail offerings from local restaurants and food trucks as well as purchase one of a kind art and items made locally by some of the area’s best artists and artisans.
Gretchen Hahn, Mennello Museum Board of Trustees Chair states “the board has put a lot of effort into planning Indie Folk Fest 2019. With PLR Florida returning as our presenting sponsor we are able to focus on planning and executing a top-notch event that our board hopes will break all attendance and revenue records.”
This year’s featured artwork for the event was created by local artist Peterson Guerrier. His work will be featured on the limited-edition merchandise for sale the day of the event.
