Naples Art hosts one of the last major art festivals of the winter season. Located on upscale Fifth Avenue South, the heart of downtown, from 3rd St S. to 9th S, this is the ideal site for this fine art festival. The Naples Downtown Art Show was rated in Sunshine Artist's Magazine 2019 ARTIST 200 Best Shows in America.
The quad setup affords every artist a corner booth and great visibility. Qualified buyers enjoy the set-up along the 5th Ave S., where they are able to have the opportunity to engage with artists and learn about their process. This show attracts approximately 15,000 art-savvy attendees. The Naples Downtown Art Show benefits from the phenomenal Southwest Florida weather, bringing both tourists and the large number of seasonal residents arriving and shopping to refresh and restyle their homes with the addition of your fine art pieces.

Set in a beautiful, historic downtown setting, the festival draws approximately 300,000 art-loving visitors. Over 1000 fine artists from around the world apply yearly to this highly competitive and very popular show. An independent panel of three judges will select the 210 fine artists and three emerging artists invited to exhibit their works. 
 
One of Central Florida's largest annual outdoor events, the Festival also features a wide variety of entertainment on the stage in Central Park, food and beverage to please the whole family, a popular juried exhibit of student art from central Florida schools, and interactive art activities for the kids.

We listened to the feedback from our 2021 Artist Survey and have scaled back the number of artists in order to have more space between the artists' booths. To make more space we have moved our traditional Friday Night Concert to the Saturday before the festival, making this concert an event to kick-off the art festival week. There will still be live entertainment during the festival, but it will take up less space, and the artists will appreciate our emphasis on easy listening music.
