On March 11 & 12, 2023, the Hernando County Fine Arts Council presented the 38th Annual Art in the Park at Tom Varn Park in Brooksville, Florida. We would like to thank the exhibitors, entertainers, sponsors, and volunteers who made this weekend possible, and of course, the thousands of supporters who attended the event! We’d also like to thank the 30 nonprofits who donated time, materials, and volunteers to encourage creativity in the Children’s Experience. The feedback from this show was incredibly positive with attendees raving about the diverse talent found throughout the park all weekend long!
