The Leesburg Art Festival is held on Main Street in the shopping district of Historic Downtown Leesburg. Leesburg is located in the heart of Central Florida, equal distance from each coast, just 12 miles from The Villages and 17 miles from Mount Dora.
Some of the country's most accomplished artists, as well as rising stars, vie for the $1,500 Best in Show Award, Merit, and Judge's Choice Awards during the juried event. Cash awards totaling $5,750 will be awarded.
Also, the Patron program has given the artists over $70,000 in sales since the advanced sale of art vouchers to our members began.
As part of our 41st Anniversary Celebration, there will be live mural paintings going on throughout the weekend in our downtown district. There is nothing better than creating art to get attendees in the mood to buy art!
