We are thrilled to announce that the 58th Space Coast Art Festival will take place October 14-15, 2023, at The Avenue® Viera in Viera, FL! Viera is a beautiful upscale master planned community just north of Melbourne on Florida’s Space Coast.

The Avenue Viera is a unique outdoor lifestyle center concept consisting of a dynamic mix of premier national retailers, select local merchants and specialty restaurants. It is conveniently located just off I-95 for easy access.

SCAF will be held on the spacious paved parking lot of this popular and busy shopping center.  The Avenue® Viera will be promoting SCAF in addition to SCAF’s digital, social and print media. And there is plenty of free parking for Artists and Patrons alike!

Artists will be jury-selected to exhibit in this outdoor fine art show, one of the top shows in the Southeast, drawing outstanding master artists from throughout the United States and beyond. All our judges are required to have an MFA and to live outside of Florida. The Festival is an intimate event with space for limited and select number of artists allowing visitors to spend more time with less duplication within categories.

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.

Our low fees are $40 Jury Fee, additional $25 for late jury fee, and $350 Booth Fee.  LATE FEE WAIVED!
