Learn the ins and outs of this year’s Coconut Grove Arts Festival.

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival is back for its 55th year! Come join the thousands of art lovers and over 360 artists walking and talking art on the winding streets of Coconut Grove on President’s Day Weekend February 17 – 19. The annual festival has grown to become one of South Florida’s most beloved art events. Its popularity is a mainstay because art lovers, foodies, music and festival lovers know that the Coconut Grove Arts Festival always makes for a great and memorable weekend experience.

The Art

Join the crowds as they walk from art stand to art stand in a relaxed outdoor setting. Oftentimes, the artists are creating as the crowds pass through, so there's a definite chance of catching a sculptor working magic with his or her hands, an artist painting on canvas, or even a woodworker carving a new masterpiece. Choose from 2D or 3D Mixed Media, Digital Art, Fiber, Glass, Claywork, Jewelry & Metalwork, and Photography, amongst the 15 different kinds of visual categories you will see at the festival. It's a casual shopper's paradise, a place to meander and buy art for your home. Some artists focus on Miami's lush scenery and well-known areas, while others from around the country or world bring their own style and flavor to the mix. It makes it the perfect place to discover something new to add to your existing collection or even inspire you to begin collecting.

The Food

You can’t have a festival without the noshing and the Grove gladly delivers. Local chefs join in on the fun with cooking demonstrations and tastings under the big white tent. Enjoy bite after bite from more than 50 restaurants and gourmet vendor partners handing out mouthwatering treats during the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. Throw caution to the wind, as you will definitely walk the calories off.

The Music and Performing Arts

In partnership with iHeartRadio, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival is sure to please music lovers as well. Get up and dance, or just relax on the lawn of the beautiful Peacock Park as the sounds of an array of musical performances take the stage throughout the three-day weekend, including many local musicians and performers. The art may have the limelight at the festival, but the music and entertainment will have the encore.

New & Emerging Artists Program

Each year five promising artists between the ages 18-29 are invited to take part in the Coconut Grove Arts Festival New & Emerging Artist Program. Shaped to provide emerging artists with affordable access and exposure, each young artist is carefully matched with a skilled festival artist in their genre. They also attend a hands-on Arts Symposium, where they are exposed to industry tips and real-world applications of the outdoor festival world. Find out information on the New & Emerging Artist for next year’s Arts Festival.
