The festival is hosted by the Visual Arts Center of Punta Gorda, who serves Charlotte County and beyond with three major galleries, an extensive arts library, an art supply store, and a gift gallery of unique hand-crafted items.
This two-day event draws thousands of visitors from Charlotte County and the surrounding areas.
The Annual Peace River National Arts Festival began in 2007, shortly after Hurricane Charley devastated Punta Gorda and Charlotte County. What began as a fundraiser to repair the Visual Arts Center facility, has continued supporting the arts in Punta Gorda over the past decade as our signature event.
This is always a fun event and so much to do. There will be music, food, drinks, and lots of great art to view and buy. The Visual Arts Center is excited to bring this opportunity to local artists and to the community. Admission is $5.
