The 34th Cape Coral Arts & Music Festival is produced by the Rotary Club of Cape Coral and is a celebration of national and local fine art, fine craft and music.
The Festival was ranked as the 24th Best Art Festival in 2017 by Sunshine Artists and is consistently in the top 50!
The 2019 event will feature 300 juried exhibitors. The event will take place outdoors on scenic Cape Coral Parkway in the heart of South Cape, the historic downtown of Florida’s tenth largest city with 179,795 residents. The Cape Coral-Fort Myers metropolitan area has 722,336 residents making it the 6th largest in the state. Tourists flock to the area in the winter to enjoy our beaches and barrier islands like Sanibel and Captiva Island.
The festival is Lee County’s largest special event according to the Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau. With over 100,000 visitors over the two days of the event, it is a must do with over 60% returning exhibitors.
A Music Festival has been added to the Festival. It is an indoor event separate from the Arts Festival Area. See the site map. We invite local establishments to host a variety of live musical genres and create a “Music Walk” for patrons to go starting in the late afternoon and on into the night. Live Music outdoors is not permitted. Music is not a category for entry into the Festival and is a separate event. Music is not allowed (recorded or live) in any Art Festival booth.
Each year the committee selects a work to be used on the festival poster and for promotional prints. Jen Callahan has been selected for her work, Blue Heron Sunrise for the 2018 Poster. The poster and previous years are available at our online store.
In addition to Banner Spaces and Sponsorships the Festival is offering 10' by 10' booth spaces in line with the festival on Cape Coral Parkway and SE 10th Place. This area ties the Music Festival to the Art Festival. Read More.
