42nd Annual Olustee Battle Festival Friday and Saturday Feb 14 & 15

Friday and Saturday, Feb 14 and 15, 2020 from 9 AM to 6 PM we will be at the 42nd Annual Olustee Battle Festival, in it’s new venue at Wilson Park on Lake Desoto, Lake City Fl.  We set up today and it is a beautiful venue and I believe will be so much nicer for both the Visitors and Vendors.

Over 200 Vendors and over 20 Food Vendors, you cannot beat this Festival for the diversity of vendors and food and it is FREE!  The weather looks pretty good mostly sun and in the 60s both days and can I say again, what a beautiful venue…

I haven’t seen so many different vendors at one Festival in quite some time and if you have the time it is worth the trip.

And we will have over 70 different Whirligigs with us this weekend, maybe the widest selection we have had all year 🙂

Hope to see you this weekend,
Bob & Selene

2nd half of Season starts with Busy Weekend

The 2020 part of the 2019-2020 Craft Season starts this weekend for JaxWhirligigs, and a busy few months ahead 🙂  This is the part of the season where we get to some other parts of the state, starting with Ormond Beach, then Lake City, Palatka, St Augustine, Bostwick and Widsor, FL.  Just keep an eye on our Calendar for our upcoming events

This Saturday Feb 01, 2020 we will be in Ormond Beach at the Granada Grand Festival of the Arts.  This is a free event starting at 9 AM until 5 PM.   Over 70 Crafters and Artists as well as Food Trucks, Interactive Arts for Kids and a Wine Tasting Event.  This will be our third visit to Ormond Beach and we have had a fabulous time at the last two events and we hope to see many friends from that neck of the woods this weekend.

Then on Sunday we will be back at the Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market for our first appearance in 2020.   The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market may just be the best market in the state, every 2 weeks there are anywhere from 80 to 100 hand made Crafters and Artists and a number of Food Trucks and Produce and Farm vendors..   If you have never visited, or not recently, it really is worth the visit.  It is always FREE and you never know what treasure you will come across,  like a new Whirligig maybe 😉

Hope to see you this weekend, or at one of our other upcoming events.

Till then,
Bob & Selene

2020 is here… 2nd half of season is upon us.

I am sitting here writing this on New Years Eve, trying to compute that tomorrow will be 2020, whewwww, hard to believe…

Our 1st show in the New Year will be on Feb 01, 2020 in Ormond Beach, FL.  The Granada Grand festival of the Arts. Then we will be back in Orange Park and then our Annual trip to Lake City for the Annual Olustee Festival & Craft Show.  In March we will be in Palatka and St. Augustine and in April, Bostwick 😆  Check our Calendar for our show schedule and updates.

We will be spending January building new Whirligigs as the 1st half of this season has been very successful and quite honestly we are out of almost a dozen different Whirligig designs right now, so for me it is build, build and build some more 🙂

For you folks in Ormond Beach and Lake City (and surrounding areas) if you are planning on coming to see us at one of the shows and you have a specific Whilrligig in mind, please contact us and let us know so we can try and bring an extra to make sure you get the Whirligig you are looking for.  We can only take so many Whirligigs and many of our larger Whirligigs we usually only bring one or two…

So until we see you at one of the shows in 2020…

Happy New Year to everyone from Selene and I, and Thanks for being a Whirligig Lover 😉

The weather this weekend should be great for both shows, on Saturday the rain should be over before the show starts and Sunday it is forecast to be Sunny all day, and in the upper 60’s on Saturday and 70 on Sunday!

Selene and I hope to see you this weekend 🙂
