ArtFest Fort Myers 2019
Let art elevate your every day
Here’s how to spend a few hours—or all day or even the entire weekend—at the start of February surrounded by imagination, inspiration and incredible talent: Visit ArtFest Fort Myers, which brings 200 exceptional professional artists to the heart of downtown on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 2-3, with opening night VIP party on Friday, Feb. 1.
The event also encourages 300 talented local high school students to pursue their artistic dreams by taking part in the
Art Under 20 exhibit and competition. And ArtFest provides opportunities for thousands of children, parents and grandparents to try their hand at creating “masterpieces.”
How do the festival artists get chosen? A jury panel of artists determines which 200 artists—from the more than 900 who apply—will exhibit at ArtFest. These artists are the “best of thebest,” with plenty of wonderful artwork for visitors to enjoy.
It’s great to be able to meet the “stars” of the show—the artists. These creative folks travel from 43 states and many foreign countries to share their work with us. They are sure to make us laugh, learn about ourselves, appreciate our past and wonder about the future—all through their art.
Unique ceramics, jewelry, handbags and clothing, plus remarkable glasswork, paintings and decorative metal designs await attendees at ArtFest Fort Myers. This family-friendly festival connects art and artists with the Southwest Florida community and is an experience that delights the senses.
