Groups looking to have their next meeting at a creative incubator should look no further than FATVillage (Flagler Arts and Technology Village). Created in 2000, FATVillage’s purpose is to serve as a hub for local creative businesses and artists.

The last Saturday of each month is the best time to visit during FATVillage’s popular ArtWalk celebration. Schedule your meeting or event to join the thousands of art and design enthusiasts who are making this multi-block art party a must-do in Greater Fort Lauderdale. Experience ArtWalk’s celebration of art and artists, complemented with food trucks and live performances. Visitors can check out galleries, studios and creative businesses who open their doors for public view and interaction.

In the heart of the Arts District, FATVillage’s largest warehouse space has become a favorite venue among locals for big events and festivals. Underground Lauderdale Fashion Weekend, headlined Nicole Miller’s Spring 2017 collection hosted by Nina Garcia of Project Runway, the South Beach Wine & Food Festival and FemAle Brew Fest, South Florida’s first ever beer festival celebrating women in the brewing industry, are just a few examples of the types of lateral happenings held here.
