Starting Friday, January 24, Lane County’s gateway to the coast is hosting the annual Florence Winter Music Festival, bringing award-winning musicians for a weekend celebrating Bluegrass, Americana, and Folk. Join them for live performances and, new this year, workshops on songwriting, guitar skills, and jamming.

The arts are further celebrated at the Florence Regional Arts Alliance Winter Arts Festival. This event hosts more than 20 local and regional artists and craftspeople selling art from a variety of mediums, personal care items, edible items, and other things. A few artists will also host demonstrations on how they craft.

Head to Florence to celebrate all things art this weekend!
