Whether you plan to spend just a few hours each day or immerse yourself for the entire weekend, get ready to be surrounded by boundless imagination, profound inspiration, and awe-inspiring talent.
ArtFest features more than 200 exceptionally gifted professional artists in downtown Fort Myers while encouraging 300 local high school artists to chase their artistic dreams. And that’s not all; it provides an opportunity for thousands of children, along with their parents and grandparents, to unleash their creative potential and try crafting a masterpiece, and it supports up-and-coming emerging artists by highlighting their artistic talents.
The stars of the show are, undoubtedly, the artists themselves. These immensely creative individuals travel from all corners of the country and across the globe to showcase their remarkable works.
Be prepared to be enchanted by unique ceramics, exquisite jewelry, specialty glass, original paintings, wearable art, and much more that awaits you at ArtFest Fort Myers. This family-friendly festival is all about connecting art and artists with our community in a delightful manner–an artistic experience that tantalizes every sense.
It’s a free outdoor fine art festival, making it the perfect family outing. Marvel at the impressive work of our talented high school artists at the Art Under 20 Exhibit and Competition, and prepare to be astonished as the students create large street paintings in the Chalk Block. Don’t miss the new “Emerging Artist” area. Always a crowd-pleaser, the Publix ArtYard and Youth Stage is brimming with opportunities for children of all ages. You can also take a break at the dining and beverage galleries.
