By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The 18th Placencia Sidewalk Festival has been set for February 11 and 12, 2023.

The Placencia Sidewalk Festival, organized by the Placencia Chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Association (PC-BTIA), is a two-day festival of art and culture that features the best in genuine Belizean souvenirs and delectable Belizean food and drinks, and entertainment.

Started 18 years ago by the now defunct Placencia Peninsula Arts Association (PPAA), the sidewalk festival was taken over by the PC-BTIA. Held along the popular Placencia Sidewalk that runs parallel to the beach and the main street, the Festival features the best of arts and crafts done by Belizean artisans.

“Whether it’s a nourishing soap that was crafted with organic cohune oil from Belize’s rainforest, a striking painting that perfectly captures our vibrant marine life, a masterful bowl carved from Belize’s prized multi-colored ziricote wood, a tiny yet so intricately designed piece of conch shell jewellery or a Maya jipijapa basket that speaks to your soul, each piece came with a story that visitors can hear straight from the maker’s mouth,” said the PC-BTIA.

The Festival now caters to artisans and artists from the entire country.

“This marvellously interactive two-day affair is bound to leave an indelible mark on the heart of any art and culture enthusiast. The festival is souvenir shopping at a more empyrean level in Belize, and one you’ll want to revisit again and again. If you come, don’t forget to grab an official Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival t-shirt, the official fundraiser for the festival organizers,” said the PC-BTIA.

Interested persons may contact the Placencia Chapter of the BTIA for more information. They may be reached at 501-523-4045, placenciatourism[email protected], or placenciatourismcenterinfo@gmail.com.
