52nd Annual Mandarin Art Festival - CANCELLED
Mark your calendars for April 3 & 4, 2021

One of the most outstanding achievements of the Mandarin Community Club is the annual Mandarin Art Festival, an Easter weekend tradition. Founded in 1968 by Judge Edward Westberry and a group of local artists, the Festival is the longest running event of its kind in Northeast Florida and draws a multi-generational crowd. A high-quality juried fine art event, the Mandarin Art Festival provides a venue for approximately 100 locally and nationally known artists working in various mediums to display and sell their work. Thousands of visitors return year after year to support their favorite artists or to see the array of creations by artists new to the Festival. As a complement to the participating professional artists, the Festival also includes a Children’s Art Show featuring the work of local elementary and middle school students. A Green Market of locally made consumable products, food vendors, children’s activities, a traditional bake sale, a chance drawing for prizes donated by neighborhood small businesses, and live music further contribute to the vibrant, family-friendly atmosphere of the two-day event. The Mandarin Art Festival serves as a vital funding source for the Mandarin Community Club's preservation, education and beautification work in the Mandarin community

An Evening With C.S. Lewis

Location: Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts
Time: 8:00 PM

An Evening with C.S. Lewis – the year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. They are about to experience a captivating evening with a man whose engaging conversation and spontaneous humor made him one of the great raconteurs of his day.
Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.
Described by critics as ‘Extraordinary!’ ‘A Must See!’ ‘A Master Class!’ An Evening with C.S. Lewis has proved again and again to be an enthralling theatrical experience and one which has led many thousands to discover (or rediscover) the continuing impact of a man who died over 50 years ago and whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of the 20th Century.
