MartinArts invites artists to apply to be an exhibitor at our 36th annual ArtsFest. ArtsFest has an attendance of 10,000+ visitors in beautiful Downtown Stuart. A hometown celebration of local arts and culture, the 2-day event provides the area with exceptional fine art and craft exhibitors, culinary arts, hands-on activities for the family, and a variety of live musical and theatrical performances. From its genesis in 1988, ArtsFest has become one of the Treasure Coast’s most beloved and best-attended community events attracting arts patrons, collectors, residents, and visitors to the City of Stuart during Florida's busy winter season and has been chosen annually as a Southeast Tourism Society "Top 20 Event" since 2016!
ArtsFest showcases fine artists hailing from all around the country in the juried art show, and talented musicians with local and regional followings. As a community-based arts organization, we seek to shine a spotlight on the many cultural assets in our community and bring fun, hands-on, free activities to all who attend. Artists are our priority at ArtsFest. A team of volunteers are dedicated to making your experience great! To enhance sales and attendance at ArtsFest, we use our resources and connections throughout the community to create awareness. Through the generous support from local media, our promotions reach residents throughout South Florida and generate excitement about our event.
ArtsFest is a major source of revenue for the MartinArts Foundation each year and with the revenues received through admission, sponsorship and other donations, provides support to our entire arts and cultural community.
