Gasparilla Festival of the Arts
The Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is recognized as one of the top-rated outdoor fine art festivals in the country. The 53rd Annual Festival will be held March 4-5, 2023, at our beautiful new location at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in downtown Tampa. The Festival is presented by Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, Inc. – a non-profit, entirely volunteer-run organization. Each year, up to 235 artists are selected through a juried process to exhibit their work for art enthusiasts and vie for more than $87,000 in award money, including the $15,000 Raymond James Best of Show Award and an additional 38 awards. The Festival is free to the public and attracts an estimated 75,000 visitors.
