The 20th annual Springfest celebration will take place at Gulfport’s Clymer Park Saturday, April 12, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
GULFPORT – The 20th annual Springfest celebration is at Gulfport’s Clymer Park Saturday, April 12, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The theme of the event is “Garden, Art and Faerie Festival.”

For one day, the park will be transformed into an “enchanted village” inhabited by costumed faeries, sprites, gnomes, ogres and trolls. Renaissance-era characters, gypsies, minstrels, wizards and roving entertainers in costume also will stroll through the event.

All visitors are encouraged to join in the spirit of Springfest by donning wings, faerie-tale finery, Renaissance flair or any imagination-inspired attire.

Two costume contests will take place to recognize the most colorfully-clad visitors, one for the little ones and another for older folks.

The event is free, family and dog-friendly, and open to the public. Activities and entertainment for all ages will be offered. These include a May pole dance, a faerie house contest, garden art and plant sale and live music. A children’s area will offer many activities including tiara-making, face painting, pixie dusting and bubble blowing.

Vendors will offer live garden plants, garden art, flowers, herbs, Renaissance-period items, clothing, jewelry, art, hand-made crafts and more. Assorted food and drink vendors will be on hand, and an enchanted beer garden will offer adult beverages. Live music will be performed throughout the day.

Clymer Park is located at 5501 27th Ave. S. along the city’s Beach Boulevard approach to the city’s waterfront district.

Free parking is available on site and free trolley rides to and from off-site parking areas will be offered.

Springfest is hosted by the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce. Co-sponsors include the city of Gulfport, the Gulfport Merchants Association, Bright House Networks, Paradise News, Beachlife, The City of Imagination and other community groups.

For more information, visit and “like” Springfest on Facebook/Gulfport Springfest or call 322-5217.
