â€œthe top fine art event in the history of Sunshine Artist Magazineâ€™s 200 Bestâ€
The 49th annual three-day event brings the most talented and creative artists from all over the world to Coconut Grove.
Our festival is truly a celebration of the arts, introducing top caliber masters of art in all mediums and genres,â€ said Monty Trainer, president of the Arts Festival.Â â€œLocals and visiting guests alike will appreciate the internationally celebrated visual, musical and culinary collections.â€
Nearly one mile of arts, food and fun, the Festival is held annually in the streets of Coconut Grove, Florida â€“ a charming village within the city of Miami. The Festival is located just south of downtown Miami, adjacent to beautiful Biscayne Bay. It runs along the streets of McFarlane Road, South Bayshore Drive and Pan American Drive.
Artists from more than 43 states and Canada were among the more than 1,200 applicants that submitted samples in mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking & drawing, watercolor, clay, glass, fiber, jewelry & metalwork, sculpture and wood.Â Applicants included 19 local artists from the Miami area and more than 100 from Fl.
Complementing the visual arts on display is the popular Culinary Pavilion that invites nationally renowned chefs to prepare their famous dishes and explain their specialties.Â This yearâ€™s chefs will represent successful restaurants and hotels from South Florida, including some nationally recognized authors. In addition, musicians will grace the Festivalâ€™s main stage located in Peacock Park.
