Carrabelle Culture Crawl

Postponed to a later date, will let you know when rescheduled.

10 to 3 pm.  The Carrabelle History Museum is hosting the Carrabelle Culture Crawl on Saturday, March 21, 2020.  This cultural event is a free celebration of amazing local culture, art, music, history, food, and fun in the heart of downtown Carrabelle.  This free, multi-venue showcase will take place at over a dozen unique galleries, museums, gift shops, restaurants, and spaces.

Be on the lookout for colorful, costumed characters including The Forgotten Coast Mermaid and some of your favorite Fishy Fashion characters wandering the streets, representing the spirit of Carrabelle. Visitors will have an opportunity to lend their talents to the creation of some public art. Attendees can also meet and chat with area authors, Cherry Rankin, Roseanna Lee and others will be at the Crawl signing their books. Music will be heard during the Culture Crawl in some unexpected places. Plus visitors get a chance to win some wonderful door prizes just for having fun!

We are excited to announce that Mershell Sherman will be returning to this year's Carrabelle Culture Crawl to again lead visitors in an interactive drum circle. What a fun way to try out some drumming for yourself!

An addition this year, will be cast net throwing demonstrations and traditional net mending. These time-honored skills have long traditional roots in Carrabelle and the Forgotten Coast. Come see some skilled folks throw these large nets with ease. Or try your hand at this time honored tradition.

Art will abound this year at the Carrabelle Culture Crawl with more opportunities for visitors to lend their talents to the creation of their own art. Newly added, the talented Lydia Countryman will be leading a large family-friendly public art project for all participants to lend a hand and enjoy. Additionally the Carrabelle Artist Association will invite guests have fun painting masks and folding origami. In addition, the always popular public art drawing installation will be up outside the White Kitchen Café. Guests can color and draw to their hearts’ content. There will be art to view and buy all over town at a variety of shops and galleries. The Carrabelle Artist Association will also have a special display of art for sale from several talented area artists. Their local artists will be available to chat and answer questions about their art.

Music will be heard during the Culture Crawl in various places - like Frank Lindamood singing folk music on Avenue B, piano music inside Christie's Cottage Living, and mellow sax music outside Rio Carrabelle. To top it all off, visitors will have a chance to join in with a hands-on music activity - a group drum circle with Mershell Sherman!

New this year will be a Carrabelle Scavenger Hunt. At each of the participating locations, there will be a clue so guests can find the answers. Find enough answers and win a prize. Winners also qualify for the drawing for some fabulous door prizes! Guests can start at the Carrabelle History Museum, SE 106 Avenue B, Carrabelle, FL or any participating location and visit as many of the wonderful locations as they would like including unique galleries, museums, shops, restaurants, and spaces.  Event maps showing the official stops will be available and the Gopher Tortoise logo will be displayed in the windows of participating locations. Complimentary refreshments will be available at several venues and visitors have a chance to enter the drawing for some great door prizes.
