Come spend a free day at the beautiful Henderson Beach State Park for the 5th Annual Family Fun Arts Fest on Saturday, May 12th from 10am to 5pm. You can finish your Mother's Day shopping with our many arts and crafts vendors, get something to eat & drink while enjoying performances by local artists like Act4Murder, have fun doing multiple free family activities, and bid on fantastic silent auction items like a 3 day/2 night stay at the Ramada Inn. Also, all OAA Okaloosa School Poster Contest entries will be on display and winners will be announced at the Fest. OAA Okaloosa School Poster Contest entries will be accepted through April 30th.

The 5th annual Family Fun Arts Fest is being hosted by the Okaloosa Arts Alliance (OAA) in conjunction with the Friends of the Emerald Coast State Parks, however, it would not be possible without the generous grant from Boeing. The Festival and Park are free and open to the public all day, with parking available in the Park. All proceeds benefit the Okaloosa Arts Alliance.
