A hometown celebration of local arts and culture, the 2-day event provides the area with exceptional fine art and craft exhibitors, a literary village, culinary arts, hands-on activities for the family, and a variety of live musical and theatrical performances.

ArtsFest Stuart was chosen as a Southeast Tourism Society “Top 20 Event” in 2016. Artists are the first priority at ArtsFest. A team of volunteers are dedicated to making your experience great. To enhance sales and attendance at ArtsFest, the Arts Council uses resources and connections throughout the community to create awareness. Through the generous support from local media, promotions reach residents throughout South Florida and generate excitement about our event.

Some comments from the 2017 Artist Survey:

  • “Love seeing my long time customers and meeting new ones each year!”
  • “Well organized!”
  • “Logistics and hospitality were easy and pleasant!”

From its genesis in 1988, ArtsFest has become one of the Treasure Coast’s most beloved and best-attended community events. ArtsFest has a reputation for having the best artists compared to other shows in the community. It provides significant financial support to the Arts Council of Martin County’s efforts to support the entire cultural sector.

ArtsFest showcases fine artists hailing from all around the country in the juried art show.  As a community-based arts organization, the Arts Council seeks to shine a spotlight on the many cultural assets in our community and bring fun, hands-on, free activities to the young people who attend. ArtsFest attracts art patrons, local residents, and visitors to the City of Stuart during Florida’s busy snowbird season.
