Event History

In its 54th year, the Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is one of the most prestigious art festivals in the USA. With up to 250 artists invited to the festival each year, it is a favorite among artists and among the 30,000 patrons who attend the 2-day event. In 2023, the steadily growing prize purse (up 20% since 2019) awarded 39 different artists with a total of $92,000 in cash prizes, including the $15,000 Raymond James Best-in-Show award. In response to artist feedback, in 2024 we have revamped our jury and awards process to make it more equitable and are updating our purchase award program to further assist artist sales. Please see our website for more details.
