The GFWC Oviedo Woman’s Club already planning its 42nd Annual Great Day in the Country Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday, November 14, 2015, at Lawton Elementary School and the Historic Lawton House in Oviedo, Florida.

Great Day in the Country is a huge family-oriented Arts & Crafts event hosted by the GFWC Oviedo Woman's Club. With more than 60,000 in attendance, Great Day in the Country is one of the largest festivals in Central Florida. This year there will be over 400 Arts & Crafts vendors, business booths, and Community Service booths. We also have a special kids' play area at Friendship Park playground.

Our Food Court and Entertainment area will feature a variety of food trucks and food vendors for your culinary enjoyment all while you enjoy our featured entertainment on the main stage, throughout the day.  The main entertainment stage will also host the Student Art Fest in which eleven Seminole County schools submit artwork. A second stage at the Historical Lawton House will feature hometown talent. Check out the Entertainment Lineup and the Food Court offerings.

If you have never tried our legendary Bean Soup and Country Store stocked by the ladies of the GFWC Oviedo Woman’s Club then you have missed out on some very special products. Visit our new Country Store Café to relax with a cup of coffee and homemade treats. The new "checkroom" at the Information Booth can hold your purchases while you continue to enjoy the festival.
