Art Festival at Mercato JANUARY

The Art Festival at Mercato will be held January 28 and 29, 2023.

One of the defining designs of this festival is to present a unique group of artists who participate at this event and not other nearby events to allow patrons to enjoy a refreshing event. Part of our jury process is to bring in different artists with new work and a new variety of work. We always believe that the quality of art is paramount and also hope to offer a unique and personal experience.

October 15 deadline. We may decide to close applications prior to this deadline should we discover that we have enough applications to fill the show. 

This is the sventh annual Art Festival at Mercato. This event is limited to apoximately 48 artists. This art festival will be held on the lawn in the middle of Mercato. Anchored by Whole Foods Market, Nordstrom Rack and Silverspot Cinema, a 12-screen premier-style theater, Mercato offers 12 notable restaurants, over 20 upscale retailers and luxury residential condominiums. Mercato hosts a vibrant year-round event calendar of events free and open to the public. CLICK HERE to be guided to the Mercato website for more information on this location.

The event features no more than 40 artists. Come and join us for the right sized show in the right section of the city. There are a small number of artists in a high traffic area, the 2nd busiest intersection in the county on the corner of Vandebilt Beach Road and 41 in North Naples, Situated by Pelican Bay and Vanderbilt Beach. This location offers premium exposure situated on the road that houses two Ritz Carlton Hotels.
