Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival
The three-day, juried art show draws more than 200 of the country's best painters, potters, sculptors, jewelers, graphic artists, craftsmen and other artists. It is held each year beginning on the first Friday in November. Featured festival art ranges from classical to whimsical with everything from traditional painting, photography and sculpture to yard art, musical instruments, clothing, and jewelry. It's the perfect time and place to begin holiday shopping or to treat yourself to a handmade treasure. Music fills the festival grounds throughout the weekend. Bartram Park is the site of the Children’s Arts Festival featuring hands-on art projects, all provided free of charge and is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday. Each year the event welcomes an International Invited Artist, who creates and sells their work at the event. For additional information, please visit www.ggaf.org.
