Event History

Celebrating its 33rd year!! The Arts Council of Martin County invites artists working in 2D and 3D mediums to participate as an exhibitor at ArtsFest on February 8 & 9, 2020. ArtsFest has become one of the Treasure Coast’s most beloved and best-attended community events with a reputation for having the best artists, as compared to other shows in the community, and provides significant financial support to the Arts Council of Martin County’s efforts to support the entire cultural sector. ArtsFest Stuart was chosen as a Southeast Tourism Society "Top 20 Event" in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019! ArtsFest showcases fine artists hailing from all around the country in the juried art show, and talented musicians with local and regional followings. We offer a beautiful subtropical setting in scenic Memorial Park in Downtown Stuart. 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 the young people who attend. ArtsFest attracts art patrons, residents and visitors to the City of Stuart during Florida's busy winter season.
