ARTIST APPLICATION DEADLINE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2020
A special message from the ArtFest staff and board, with gratitude to our community:

We've been reminded over and over again in the past months of the power of the arts to bring people together in the midst of trying, complicated times.

The ArtFest Fort Myers office is closed to the public for your safety and the safety of our staff. Be assured our staff is working behind those locked doors and that ArtFest Fort Myers is secure and planning for 2021, thanks to talented artists, dedicated sponsors, devoted volunteers, and the community of art lovers that surrounds us.

Please stay home and away from people, for your own health and safety. Remain vigilant and heed guidance from local authorities and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Until we are able to open safely again, please keep connected with us via email and social media or call us at 239-768-3602.

We are grateful to all of you. Stay safe and healthy until we can all be together again.
