Joann Castillo

The Apopka Art and Foliage Festival Committee is responsible for the orchestration of the  festival.  It is comprised of thirty eight (38) fabulous women, who dedicated countless hours to ensuring another SUCCESSFUL event for the community.  The Committee is lead by Chairmen Joann Castillo.


Throughout the weekend, you will witness a swarm of “green shirts”—which represent unity, worn by Members who are willing and ready to assist guests.  One of the Club's main goals is bringing women together to benefit themselves and their community by promoting civic, cultural, educational and social welfare.  Additionally, we have an, “all heels on decks!” approach to service, which is highly valued.  This philosophy is iterated to Prospective & New Members and reiterated to Members.


The Apopka Woman’s Club has approximately ninety five (95) Members, who also contribute to the festival in a myriad of capacities.  To learn more about our long-term civic impact in the community, or obtain information on joining our Club, please visit
