Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Art Fair Calendar.comJanuary 29-30, 2011
Historic Old Town -
Key West, Florida
Application Deadline - September 1, 2010
100 artist booths

The Key West Art Center, a non-profit community art center, sponsors the show that highlights 100 artist exhibitors. Locals and tourists alike flock to the Old Towne to see what's new each year and to see old favorites.

Cruise boats dock just blocks from the show and passengers are dropped onto the street a block from where the canopies line the beautiful tree lined streets. Running parallel one block from famous Duval Street and its famous bars and restaurants, is an added bonus.

In its 26th year now the show has grown and changed from the local funky street bazaar to a wonderfully eclectic mix of skilled and fine craft. Like Key West itself, this show has a wonderful mix of styles and traditions and the locals and tourists alike find their favorites. January's warm tropical breezes bring tourists of all kinds to our tiny island city and many of them plan their trip around the Key West Craft Show.

The 100 juried artists set up on Whitehead and Caroline Art Fair Calendar.comStreets in the historic district and through the famous Presidential Gates into the private residential community known as Truman Annex. This compact arrangement makes it easy for visitors to walk the entire show.

This show is run by artists for artists, and strives to bring all the right things together for everyone to have a great show. Advertising is done throughout the Keys and South Florida with support from the Florida Keys Tourist Development Grant and the Key West Art Center.

Please feel free to call for more information. We are Key West...... we are happy to answer all your questions and hope you come visit!

I'm looking forward to new applications as I love meeting all the new artists! (I love my "old" artists too!) This year's show will coincide with the Key West Food & Wine Festival and they are giving us lots of press and including our event as something to do in the "off" time of their events! Please give me a shout if anyone has any questions!

I am seriously contemplating it. Needs to be worth while for me to travel from Maryland to it. However, the simple knowledge of knowing I will be in Key West - first time ever - in the middle of winter (our blizzard is still fresh on our mind) sounds almost worth it - just for that. I am going to have to seriously think about it...

I have been to Key West and loved it. I'm applying and hope to be there. Its like paradise and I would also be traveling a long distance . Leaving the cold Upper Peninsula of Michigan for some warmth . Might have to just stay a while longer.

How fun would that be? I'm prodding the Man. He's got a friend who has a place on Marathon Key. Hee. I have too many shows in the Fall to consider this for real.

Or do I? :)
