Fine art, fresh air and fun at the Babcock Ranch Art Show

Guests at the Babcock Ranch Art Show can enjoy fresh air fun while being inspired by the work of more than 50 exceptional juried artists on Saturday, March 13, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Against the backdrop of beautiful Lake Babcock, the alfresco event in downtown Founder’s Square will showcase watercolor, oil and acrylic painting, sculpture, photography, metalwork, jewelry, ceramics, and wood and fiber art. Guests also can enjoy fare from a selection of Southwest Florida’s favorite food trucks stationed along Lake Babcock Drive, along with refreshments from Babcock Ranch’s Square Scoops, Slater’s, and Cup A Joe at Curry Creek Outfitters.

“Babcock Ranch’s wide-open spaces in Founder’s Square offer plenty of room for guests to spread out and enjoy the Art Show and explore the town,” said Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of Babcock Ranch’s developer, Kitson & Partners. “We work closely with the team from ArtFest Fort Myers to ensure the Art Show is a fun and safe event for our guests and residents.”

Advance ticket purchase is required for all guests ages six and over for $5 per person at Event parking is free.

Art Show admission will be time-staggered through two entrances, and all guests over two years old and vendors will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the festival area. Signage will remind guests to abide by CDC recommendations in place for the safety of all.

A Builder Expo area in Founder’s Square will offer information from Babcock Ranch’s team of nine homebuilders about available home designs and the more than two dozen model homes now open or underway in the town’s seven neighborhoods. In the newly redesigned Discovery Center in Woodlea Hall, Town Ambassadors will be on hand to answer questions about the sustainable vision behind America’s first solar-powered town and its welcoming lifestyle.
