Believe it or not, Winterfest is more than just a seasonal beer. Anna Maria Island Art League is holding its 21st Annual Winterfest Fine Arts Festival this weekend. Over 100 artists from the region have been selected to participate in one of the oldest and largest juried arts and crafts festivals in Manatee County. The Young at Art children’s exhibit, the Cajun and bluegrass music, the variety of specialty foods: All these are sure to add to the atmosphere of the celebration. Sounds a lot better than the winter atmosphere I’m used to: numb fingers and snowy shoes. 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Dec. 13 and 14, Holmes Beach City Hall Park, 5901 Marina Drive, Sarasota, free, 778-2099 or islandartleague.org.
