A Slice of Americana



The Neighborhood Village, sponsored by Kitchen Craft, is dedicated to the homemade and handcrafted items created by folks in our community.  The Neighborhood Village is located on the east side of the Festival grounds.

It’s your chance to see some of the finest award-winning creations you can imagine. Entries will be on display all 11 days of the Festival in this climate-controlled building under the supervision of the Neighborhood Village committee.

These entries, made by both youth and adults (youth are in separate divisions), are created or prepared by Florida residents, judged and then awarded monetary prizes and ribbons in their respective categories.



The Neighborhood Village is now home to the
East Hillsborough Art Guild Art Show & the Photography Contest.
