Fort Lauderdale, Florida (July 27, 2009) – The Las Olas Art Fair returns for its 22nd anniversary on October 24 – 25, 2009, with an addition, a Beer Garten.   This top ranked festival has become a highly anticipated fall tradition attracting locals and tourists alike.  Admission is free and open to the public.

This two-day event brings together more than 150 of the nation’s most talented artists who will collectively display over $15 million in artwork, available for sale.  The artists were juried by an independent panel of expert judges, and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity.  All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.

This year, in honor of Oktoberfest, a Beer Garten will be featured at the art show.  Located at the eastern end of the festival, between 9th and 11th Avenues, the festive Beer Garten will offer a variety of micro-brewed beers available for purchase.

Howard Alan Events stipulates that all artists are required to be on-site for the entire duration of the show. The artists will line Las Olas Boulevard with their professional display booths, transforming the area into a first-class outdoor art gallery. The public can meet and talk with the artists personally, asking questions about their art and inspirations.  The artistic media represented include paintings, sculptures, photos, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics.

With its casual outdoor setting, boasting fine boutiques, great restaurants and fabulous city atmosphere, the Las Olas Art Fair & Oktoberfest makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. Prices range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. The event appeals to family and friends as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections.
