The Rotary Club of Cape Coral and the City of Cape Coral welcome you to the 34th Annual Cape Coral Arts & Music Festival.

 

Of Note

 

We added a Music Festival last year. The Music Festival will be away from the Arts Festival at venues around South Cape. Different music at each – Jazz, Pop. Country, Rock and More. It will be indoors and outdoors at participating restaurants and nightclubs from 3pm to 9pm on Saturday.

 

We have a Non-Profit and Business Section to the west of the Festival. These booths are for For Profit Companies and Non-Profit organizations (proof of 501(c)3 status required). They are for retailers, professional services, healthcare providers, service industries or basically any business (other than food or beverage sales (on-site consumption

 

)Both of these are intended to keep patrons here longer and into the evening. Normally crowds start to thin a little around 3pm. Our hope is to get some people to come later and visit the show and stay for dinner and music.

 

We hope that you will have a successful and enjoyable show this year. We will be doing everything we can to assist you. Please don’t hesitate to ask for help, but please remember you are dealing with volunteer labor – be kind – they are doing the best they can.
