This outdoor festival portrays the uniqueness of Broward’s oldest city and reflects its unique artistic vibe by celebrating the diversity of local and regional artists, craft artists, specialty food vendors and handmade products. The DBASC gives artisan small businesses the opportunity to exhibit and sell their wares to thousands of potential buyers. Last year, over 20,000 people attended the event. The Festival is promoted nationally, regionally, and locally to the art-buying public through television, newspapers, radio, direct mail, press releases, magazines, websites, and social media.
Michelle Oprisi, a Dania Beach native, is overjoyed to have been an art vendor five years in a row. “It has been a magnificent experience participating in the Arts and Seafood Celebration since its conception. Selling my photography at this event has been highly successful and I have sold increasingly more each year. I am excited to see what the 6th annual has in store!” Oprisi was awarded Best in Show last year.
