April 13 & 14
Historic, Old-World Cedar Key, Florida
Deadline: December 15
Have you heard of Cedar Key?
Four reasons to apply Today!
1. The Most Magical Spot In The USA. People spend their lives searching for a haven like Cedar Key. Seven Islands connected by bridges on the Gulf, 60 miles west of Gainesville with 1800's buildings and Native American history. Surrounded by tranquil beauty with mystical islands, bird sanctuaries and the best darn clams, oysters, crabs and redfish, anywhere! Plus, unmatched hospitality of our historic community of artists, fishermen (and women) and creative, eclectic people. The vibe in Cedar Key is what Key West was-sixty years ago. It's where you'll find members of your tribe-on the water, in the bars, at the show, in the gulf-front park.
2. Money & Patrons. 22,000 people attend the free festival. $10,000 in Prize Money plus $8,000 in Patron Purchase Awards. Low fees: application $32-booth $150.
3. Plan Your Florida Tour with 3 consecutive Shows in Two Weeks. Leverage your time! Bookend Cedar Key show with two larger shows: Gainesville Santa Fe Art Festival and St. Petersburg Mainsail Festival are the weekend before and after. (apply separately)
4. Who Loves Ya Baby? We take real good care of you! Complimentary Artists Breakfasts and Award Reception, friendly booth sitters, affordable booth fees, comfortable 10x12 spaces. Friday pm and Saturday am set up. Great food (only local, home-made food at the festival), great drinks, cool places to watch the sunset (Low Key Hideaway Tiki Bar) and friendly people everywhere. You'll think your dreaming-but you'll be in wondrous Cedar Key! Prepare to fall in love!
Hosted by the Cedar Key Art Center, we live for INSPIRATION, PASSION-and are ROOTING for more western, mid-west and northern artists. Established and Emerging-to join our strong contingent of southeastern artists at our annual, juried fine arts and crafts festival. A smart planner can work three shows in two weeks!
