5th Annual ArtKidDoo

Vendor booth openings still available for event

The date for ArtKidDoo has been set for Saturday, April 8, and the event will be held in Shivers Park in Chipley, from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. ArtKidDoo is a collaborative effort between the Early Learning Coalition of Northwest Florida, the Washington County Arts Council, childcare providers and local businesses to encourage awareness for the arts in young children.

The community will come together for this free, 1-day event to offer hands-on arts and crafts as well as performance art by local artists, musicians, and vocalists. Light food options will be available.

Businesses, civic organizations, non-profit and faith-based organizations are welcome to join as a vendor booth for this 5th annual event. The cost is free for vendors. The Early Learning Coalition asks that all vendors provide a hands-on art activity in which children and families can participate. Nearly 800 people were in attendance at ArtKidDoo last spring, and we anticipate more participation this year.
