Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
January 24 & 25, 2015
Key West, Florida
Whitehead and Caroline Streets
The Key West Craft Show, which attracts buyers from locals, cruise boats and tourists, was rated by Sunshine Artists in the top 100 shows, most recently at #45. The 2014 show had attendance estimated over 25,000 visitors. This show is popular with locals and tourists alike and only one block from popular Duval Street.
Since this is our 30th annual we have planned a special advertising section in a local paper that will include a two page spread with artist names and maps sponsored by local businesses.
This is a two day juried outdoor craft festival. This nationally recognized festival brings over 100 fine and skilled craft artists to this beautiful historic area of Key West. Exhibitors set up along Whitehead Street from Greene Street to Eaton, and on Caroline Street through the famous Presidential Gates into the beautiful Truman Annex.
Set among historical attractions such as Audubon House, the Little White House and Mel Fisher Museum, the City of Key West closes two blocks of Whitehead Street and another block of Caroline Street to vehicle traffic for the show.
Visitors can leisurely browse the beautiful displays of pottery, fabric, glass, wood, jewelry and other colorful handmade works by the selected artists.
The show, in its 30th year, is sponsored by the Key West Art Center and was created to complement the Old Island Days Art Festival held in February.
