"The Village of the Arts is a vibrant community of artists living and working together in Bradenton, Florida. The Village is Florida’s largest art community and over 30 businesses call the Village home. Galleries, studios, cafes, healing arts, jewelry, fashion and books can all be found as you wander the streets of this charming area of restored 1920's and 30's cottages. Located just south of downtown, the Village is one of Bradenton's most exciting areas. Carving out a creative community where people can live and create, going strong after more than 11 years."
Open primarily on weekends, this series of colorful and vibrant homes are a delight to wander through. The owners are friendly and excited about the work that they do, and if the crowd permits, they are happy to chat and share their craft. We ended our day there with a charming puppet parade, which I will share in my next post. Enjoy!
