SeaBreeze Recreation Center

2384 Buena Vista Blvd, The Villages, Florida

Our artisans and suppliers from here in The Villages and around the country have been hard at work to bring their finest to our Annual Artisan Show.

All of these folks love what they do, and they love sharing their work with others. They have been polishing and shaping stones, creating amazing jewelry pieces with a variety of styles. In addition, rock hounds can find a huge variety of materials to work with. And people who want to make their own jewelry and bead work will be thrilled with the range of raw materials they can find at this event.

The Artisan Show will take over all five rooms of the SeaBreeze Recreation center. Over fifty different vendors will be displaying their work.
