2021 brought two ways to enjoy Southwest Florida's Premier Art Festival, featuring made-in-USA originals by 170 nationally-known artists.

Art lovers enjoyed the in-person festival on the waterfront in historic downtown Fort Myers OR the brand-new virtual festival, ArtFest@Home. (Or both, since you can never have too much art in your life!)

Either way, they discovered beautiful, hand-crafted treasures ... in a wide range of prices to suit every budget. Be sure to put ArtFest Fort Myers on your calendar for 2022!
