About

Save the Date! ArtsFest returns on February 11 & 12, 2023 in Gazebo Park, downtown Stuart!

ArtsFest returns to downtown Stuart February 11-12 from 10AM - 5PM featuring a wide variety of visual artists, musicians, singers, and top area chefs. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $5, 18 and under free.

Consistently named one of the area’s Top 20 Events by the Southeast Tourism Society, ArtsFest will continue its 36-year history and showcase a diverse selection of arts to be enjoyed by residents and visitors. On the visual artist front, a juried art festival with submissions from across the nation will feature top artists in the categories of painting, drawing, mixed-media, photography, ceramics, glass, wood, sculpture, and jewelry are selected according to workmanship, originality, and artistic conception. 

In addition to the juried art show, attendees can watch the popular CHOPPED event showcasing the inventive talents of renowned Treasure Coast chefs and listen to performances by the greatest talent on the Treasure Coast.  Creating an added community ‘buzz,’  local agencies and nonprofit organizations will provide ArtsFest patrons with family-fun activities such as complimentary guitar lessons and getting up-close-and- personal with wildlife and nature along with information about a broad variety of supportive and enriching community programs and services

“We always aim to surprise and delight guests who attend ArtsFest, and this year will be no different,” said Nancy Turrell, CEO of MartinArts Foundation. “ArtsFest is truly an extension of the expansive arts community we have on the Treasure Coast, and we love this opportunity to highlight their accomplishments.”

Leading up to ArtsFest, Martin County Office of Tourism and MartinArts are partnering again to host the Hidden Turtles scavenger hunt. Glass turtles, made by Palm City based glass artist, Dot Galfond can be found near cultural venues, art in public places venues and other popular spots in Martin County. Those who find one of the 10 gold-colored sea turtles will win a pair of complimentary ArtsFest tickets and the prize for the other 40 green sea turtles will be a special “buy one get one” general admission ticket to ArtsFest!

Annually, ArtsFest draws over 8,000 people and over the past 3 years has generated more than a $1 million dollars to the local economy.
