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

Enjoy the in-person festival on the waterfront in historic downtown Fort Myers OR the brand-new virtual festival, ArtFest@Home. (Or why not both, since you can never have too much art in your life!)

Either way, you'll discover beautiful, hand-crafted treasures ... in a wide range of prices to suit every budget.
