One of the focuses of Keep Pasco Beautiful is waste reduction, and we are thrilled to address this area with the Pasco Upcycle Arts & Drafts Festival.  This will be the sixth year for the event.  The 2020 festival will take place on November 14th from 10 am to 3 pm. The event will be located at Railroad Square in Downtown New Port Richey.  

Many people hear waste reduction and think of the standard household recycling of aluminum cans at the curb, but options are much broader than that.  Many things can be reused to reduce the amount of waste in our environment.  There is a term for the ingenious process of reinventing something with a better quality, or for better environmental value: upcycle.

​The purpose of the Pasco Upcycle Arts & Drafts Festival is to reduce waste by changing peoples’ perceptions of what can be salvages into not only something useful, but often times a work of art.  This event will have numerous upcycle vendors with items such as pallet furniture and spoon bracelets, and their will also be environmental education vendors.  There will be no admission fee.  ​

We are currently looking for the following types of vendors:​

This year all vendor spots will be 10' x 10', and there will be a $30 vendor fee per spot to help cover event expenses.  For more information on this event please contact Kristen King at (727) 834-3611 ext 1072 or via email at
