Ordinary Sidewalks Transform into 3D Art

Art has magic in it, but that’s especially true at this Florida art festival. Like a scene from Mary Poppins, you can make your childhood dreams of jumping into a chalk painting come true at the FLLUXE Arts Festival. Nationally renowned street painters and local artists make the sidewalks and streets come alive as their paintings transform everything into a magical animated world that you can become a part of. Although you won’t find any talking creatures like Mary Poppins, the 3D sidewalk drawings emerge off the ground with optical illusions, creating an immersive and interactive experience that’s fun for everyone. You’ll also get a chance to meet all the national artists and learn more about how they make their masterpieces in special workshops. There’s even a special kids chalk zone!

Gravity-Defying Dancers and Eclectic Musicians

From aerial dancers to belly dancing and hula hoop artists, the different performances that make an appearance at FLLUXE every year are a captivating experience. Live music plays throughout the day with local and national artists making the lineup for the entertainment schedule. You might catch an acapella tune by the local Panama City Acapella Chorus or hear the St. Andrews Ukulele Orchestra strumming away. The musical entertainment doesn’t ever disappoint, with a variety of genres from rock to folk to honkytonk blues and more!

Artisanal Vendors and Culinary Delights

Panama City is home to an award-winning farmers market, which also means it’s home to a large variety of artisanal vendors creating one-of-a-kind art and handcrafted goods. You’ll have a tough decision to make between the variety of gourmet food trucks serving up delicious entrees. Along with the pop-up vendors, Harrison Avenue in Downtown Panama City is lined with charming boutiques full of hidden treasures and some of the best restaurants around with coastal culinary delights full of southern flavor. You’re sure to find delightful surprises wherever you go.
