Why do so many artists put ArtFest Fort Myers at the top of their "must-go" list?

The answer is simple: ArtFest is all about you, the artist.

So on behalf of the staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors of ArtFest Fort Myers, I want to welcome you to your festival.

We're 100% committed to making this a great experience for you -- enjoyable as well as profitable.

That's why we promote the festival extensively and effectively. (Last year 90,000 people showed up to shop and buy.)

That's why we're always working on ways for you to make extra money and share your talent while you're in town -- and sell more art during the festival.

And that's why we give plenty of tips for artists, so you can make the most of every show you attend.

Please feel free to be in touch with any questions. We love talking with artists and we want you to succeed!

Executive Director
