    Welcome Friends & Neighbors!

    On behalf of the Board of Directors for the Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, Inc. (P.E.C.), I am pleased to present to you this 2017 edition of the Official Guide for the 28th Annual Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities (ZORA! Festival).

    Personally, I am very proud to be our organizations new president. I have been in business in Historic Eatonville for more than two decades and I established my business in this community specifically because of its history and cultural heritage.

    The program for ZORA! Festival 2017 is truly outstanding. For our students, pre-K - grade 12, there will be a broad range of offerings, including arts and crafts activities, science demonstrations, book giveaways, special workshops, and, for a 4th year, a ZORA! STEM Conference for Middle School Students. Also, we are presenting, in partnership with Rollins College, a first-ever national Communities Conference, in recognition of the 130th anniversary of Historic Eatonvilles Incorporation. Then, theres our inaugural ZORA! Golf Tournament AND, for our organization, yet another 1st -- A Benefit Performance on behalf of the ZORA! Festival. With funding from the Ford Foundation and other New York-based underwriting, Woodie King, Jr.s New Federal Theatre will present Zora Neale Hurston: A Theatrical Biography starring Elizabeth Van Dyke.

    Indeed, we have a program for all ages to enjoy. Please plan to spend as much time as possible with us this January 21-29. ZORA! Festival is our way of drawing the worlds attention to this precious Town, our organizations signature event as we strive to achieve of our ultimate goal -- Preserving the Eatonville Community.
