DeLand Hosts Two Festivals This Weekend


DeLand, FL - Two festivals canceled in 2020, the DeLand Outdoor Art Festival and the Florida Wildflower and Garden Festival are scheduled to take place this weekend in DeLand. They both usually take place on the same weekend but something missing this year is the shuttle between the two.

The Outdoor Art Festival takes place on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Earl Brown Park. About 90 vendors will be featured. There will be hand-sanitizing stations and complimentary masks for visitors, all mandated by the City of DeLand. 

Event organizer Patty Claussen said she was happy to make the changes to hold the festival, but hopes to have things back to normal in 2022.

“We had to downsize and be conscious of social-distancing, wearing a mask, and hand sanitizing. We’ll have all of that,” Claussen said. “That is what we have to do, and we’re glad to do it.”

The 15th annual Florida Wildflower & Garden Festival happens on Saturday only from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  It's presented by the MainStreet DeLand Association and will feature gardening-themed vendors along East Indiana and North Alabama avenues. Masks and social distancing will be required.

It’s a nice, family-friendly event. We will do our best to make it a safe environment for everyone,” MainStreet DeLand Association Executive Director Wayne Carter said. “All of our events until further notice will be following COVID-19 guidelines that the city set, and maybe even more than they’re asking for. We’re really trying to do our best.”
