From its genesis in 1988, ArtsFest has become one of the Treasure Coast’s most beloved and best-attended community events. ArtsFest has 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 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 tropical setting in beautiful, newly renovated Memorial Park in 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, local residents and visitors to the City of Stuart during Florida’s busy snowbird season.
ArtsFest, the Council’s largest source of revenue for the year and with the revenues received through admission, sponsorship and other donations, is able to provide support to the entire arts and cultural community.
