As Goodland continues its arduous recovery from Hurricane Irma, the village is definitely open for business, and for the Goodland Arts Alliance: It’s Showtime!

Despite widespread damage and loss, this plucky community is anxious to show the world what can be achieved when you are Goodland Strong! The Goodland Arts Alliance (GAA), along with Collier County Parks and Recreation, is sponsoring its fifth annual outdoor Members’ Arts & Crafts Fair on Sunday, January 28, 10 AM to 4 PM at MarGood Harbor Park in Goodland. The event coincides with Goodland’s world famous Mullet Festival – a cultural extravaganza unto itself.

Talented members of the GAA gather to support the organization’s mission to “preserve, promote, and advance the cultural presence in the historic fishing village of Goodland through art, history, and education.” The village may be tiny, but the talent and determination is mighty.

The venue, MarGood Harbor Park, holds well-documented historic and environmental significance. Today, native landscaping and lovely walkways wrap around a charming harbor-front. The park also features a museum/interpretive center, two open-air pavilions, and kayak launch. Come support this hard-hit community, enjoy the arts, live music, and good eats!
