Presented by Gasparilla Festival Of The Arts at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park

Artists and art lovers from all parts of the country migrate every winter to the Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, where the country’s most accomplished artists and rising stars vie for the $15,000 Raymond James Best of Show Award and an additional $59,500 in prize money.

Held annually during the first weekend in March in downtown Tampa, it is a true showcase. Featured art includes ceramic, digital, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, watercolor and wood. The esteemed event also features the works of local young artists, a weekend full of live entertainment and a children’s art activity area.

So make plans to join us for a most memorable and inspiring weekend – as an artist, visitor, volunteer or sponsor.
