Taste of Summer Call to Artisans

Taste of Summer is an annual celebration in Jacksonville presented by Britt Music & Arts Festival and the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce. The event includes a wine walk, live music, food booths, art, classic cars and more. This will be the second year in which selected artisans or crafters will be invited to show and sell their products. Art Presence is committed to its ongoing participation in the Taste, and we hope you will choose to celebrate the opening of the Britt Music & Arts Festival 2016 concert season by participating with your own booth—in the center of the action in downtown Jacksonville—this spring!
