Daphne's 32nd Annual Jubilee Festival of Arts kicked off Saturday with health safety measures in place to combat COVID-19. The festival had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Sally in September.

The 2020 Festival moved to Lott Park on Main Street where vendors and visitors can spread out to allow for social distancing. At full capacity, organizers can put 10 feet between each vendor’s booth and allow for much wider walkways for guests.

The festival will also feature artists on the Artist Virtual Shop so patrons can continue to support them online, even if they can’t make it out to the event.

The Kids Art Park will look a lot different for 2020. Families can pick up Grab and Go Kids Art Supplies at the festival or the Eastern Shore Chamber office the week of the festival. Kids can then follow along online with featured artist Ricky Trione for a virtual art lesson.

Entertainment will consist of solo acts and music throughout the weekend. The festival is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. October 17 and 18.

Hand sanitizer stations will be setup throughout the festival. Patrons are asked to follow state guidelines for social distancing and wearing face masks in public spaces.
