HeART of the Season: November 20-21

Just like our Saturday Strolls over the summer, downtown busineses are encouraged to showcase the local creative scene with artist or product demonstrations, live music and/or weekend promotions and specials at this year’s HeART of the Season.

This event isn’t just for galleries and studios and is open to all Heart of Brevard businesses.

HOB will create a walking map for vistors with a list of all participants.
