The Kiwanis Club of Safety Harbor puts on two Arts and Crafts Shows that are usually held the third Sunday in March and the second Sunday in December on Main Street in downtown Safety Harbor.
One hundred percent of net proceeds from these events goes directly back into the Safety Harbor Community. The proceeds finance our student service projects, scholarships, and community grants.
Our shows are an excellent opportunity for artists and crafters to display and sell their products. We make every effort to ensure crafts and art are original and are very well attended.
