There will be plenty of free parking at the justice center and surrounding areas. The event is sponsored by the Visual Arts Center, the community’s nonprofit cultural facility.

The show is limited to 90 artists and we work very hard to limit repetition in art works. The festival attracts thousands of visitors. The festival is run for the benefit of the Visual Arts Center of Punta Gorda, Charlotte County, Florida and the City of Punta Gorda have been instrumental in making this event a treasured community event.

This is a solid successful event. Friday set-up where you can drive up to booth. Parking is close and the location is beautiful. Attendance averages 9,000.
