2015 Call to Artists

Looking for a small, high quality juried fine arts event whose focus is on you? This is it!

Cedar Key, a picturesque island community 60 miles SW of Gainesville, FL has been hosting a Spring Arts Festival since 1964. Returning to a smaller venue of 120 fine artists in 2014, allowed more room for artists and art enthusiasts to engage and created a more welcoming environment which resulted in high artist satisfaction ratings.

HIGHLIGHTS:
  • 120 juried artists & craftsman
  • Over $16,000 in Prizes and Purchase
  • Awards All booths on Historic 2nd St
  • Complimentary Breakfasts
  • Artist Reception and Awards Ceremony
  • Booth sisters and friendly volunteers
  • Friday evening or Saturday morning drive-in set-up
  • Booth Fee $165
 
 

The weekend of March 28 & 29 was chosen in order to catch the Florida "snow-birds" and to be the first in a series of North Florida Fine Art shows followed in April by Gainesville and Tampa.

If you are looking for a high quality festival in a relaxed atmosphere, with top-notch hospitality surrounded by nature's beauty, then the Old Florida Celebration of the Arts is for you.

Applications via Zapplication.org. Deadline - November 15. Application Fee $32.
