The Mandarin Art Festival, founded in 1968 by the Mandarin Community Club, will be commemorating 50 years of success on Easter weekend of this year. Make plans to help celebrate this milestone with us on March 31 and April 1, 2018.

The Festival has been an Easter tradition for generations of families and continues to grow each year. The family-friendly community event, already the largest in Mandarin, saw record crowds on Saturday of 2017 and anticipates even more attendees as we celebrate the 50 year anniversary this spring. Over the years, tens of thousands of guests have strolled under the oaks of the historic Mandarin Community Club to peruse the artwork of more than 100 local and nationally known artists. Painting, photography, jewelry, sculpture, glasswork, pottery and more are exhibited by award winning artists. Patrons add to their collections or find new items of interest each and every year!

Other activities include a Green Market of unique locally sourced and made items, a Bake Sale with homemade goodies from the kitchens of Club members, Food Vendors providing an array of cuisine and the beloved Children’s Art Show, sponsored by Weaver & Stratton Pediatric Dentistry, proudly displaying the creations of talented students from area elementary and middle schools. The Mandarin Community Club will host a table for the sale of Festival T-shirts, Club merchandise and tickets for a chance at fantastic raffle items!

Live entertainment will be provided throughout the weekend and the historic, 100-year-old Post Office and General Store will be open and manned by the Mandarin Museum and Historical Society so that guests may stroll through its doors and back into history. Mandarin Masonic Lodge will offer children’s activities including a coin treasure hunt and CHILD ID program as a free service to the public.
