There were artists and craftspeople from many parts of Belize…
Jeanna’s work at the fest.
And some of Ernest’s art.
How amazing would this be in a child’s room…or anywhere. It’s huge and, I think, reasonably priced at $600BZ ($300US). I love this one.
And then famous Belizean musician and art Pen Cayetano. (Check out his amazing website!) Crazy talent. I want one!
I found this gentleman making palm frond baskets. Last time I saw him, he was making Belikin holders.
There was a little fair set up on the beach…
Lots of cakes and desserts for sale.Friends from San Pedro, Bob and Maureen and from Placencia, Jolie who worked to organize all of this.
Ozzy the Clown. The kids were mesmorized.More jewelry along the sidewalk.
And the gorgeous sea glass and silver jewelry…
And the artist.
I love this stained glass by Leisa at Banana Bank Lodge outside of Belmopan.
And for charity…silent auction and a kids’ art tent. Raise money for the kids of Placencia.
Love that this village also has a Youth Center. I need to get information on this and how it started!
There was a drawing for the BRAND NEW GOLFCART…I had purchased a ticket last year in August at Captain Jak’s. $100bzd. 300 tickets sold. $6000bzd donated to the Youth Outlet.
My ticket did NOT win. The winner was Pam Solomon owner (with her husband) of amazing restaurant Rumfish y Vino.
Random art around town. A Belikin trash man.
Love this painted on the side of someone’s house.
Okay back to the art for sale. This mermaid art caught my eye…
These guys were amazing. Punta and seagrape wine.
One more beautiful piece of art.
A beautiful weekend. And I tried hard not to spend money…only buying ONE sea glass necklace. I will admit that the festival had fewer vendors than I expected but I had a great time. Maybe because there is another art festival coming up this weekend in Belize City?
Gorgeous weather, gorgeous Placencia, great music, kids having fun, HUGE late night parties and some really good food. It was great to see artists from all over Belize sharing ideas.
I’m very glad that I went. Maybe I’ll see you next at the Placencia Lobsterfest?
