We invite you to apply to our Juried Master Fine Arts Show. The 54th Space Coast Art Festival will be held on a new weekend, October 27 - 28, 2018, at Manatee Sanctuary Park in the City of Cape Canaveral, Florida. We are changing the dates after more than 50 years of the show being held on Thanksgiving Weekend. The November date has always been a challenge for Artists, Volunteers, and Patrons alike with family obligations, travel, etc.
Manatee Sanctuary Park is a beautiful, spacious 10 acre park that is situated on the Banana River. Amenities include a covered riverside boardwalk, paved walkway, exercise stations, and a covered pavilion with picnic tables for our Artists’ breakfast. The booth layout is easily accessible to patrons and flows smoothly. Most artists will be able to drive to their locations to set up displays and tents. All spaces are on grass, placed on either side of a paved walkway. There are numerous hotels and restaurants in Cape Canaveral and a campground at Port Canaveral. Park and Ride service will be available for Patrons.
Artists will be jury-selected to exhibit in this outdoor show, one of the top shows in the Southeast, drawing outstanding master artists from throughout the United States and beyond.
The Space Coast Art festival is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. We have been praised by participating artists for being artist friendly and for our teams of cheerful, helpful Volunteers.
