Gulfport Celebrates Spring and Faeries

Springfest | Gulfport | Festival

Events include a May-pole dance and a costume contest.

GULFPORT – The Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce will host its 22nd Annual Springfest Garden Art & Faerie Festival along the green and tree-covered expanse of Gulfport’s 7.5 acre Clymer Park this Saturday (April 9) and Sunday (April 10). The Garden Art & Faerie themed festival will transform the park into an “enchanted village” inhabited by costumed faeries, sprites, gnomes, ogres and trolls.  Renaissance-era characters, gypsies, minstrels, wizards and roving entertainers in costume will also stroll through the event.

A wide variety of family friendly activities and entertainment will include a May-pole dance, a faerie house contest, costume contests and live music.  A children’s area will offer activities including face painting, pixie dusting, bubble blowing, and more.  Vendors will offer plants, garden art, flowers, herbs, Renaissance-period items, clothing, jewelry, art, hand-made crafts, food and beverages, and other items of whimsical interest.

There is no admission fee for the pet and family friendly event, and complimentary parking is available with free trolley rides to and from off-site parking areas. For information, call (727) 322-5217 or go to Facebook/Gulfport Springfest.

Date/Time: 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday (April 9) and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday (April 10)
