The Festival Now in its 47th year, the Tarpon Springs Fine Arts Festival on the Bayou welcomes you to a celebration of the visual arts ranging from delicate drawings and pastels to monumental sculptures. Wearable art, art for the home, abstract and realist works...all are available for your collecting pleasure. A treasure trove of handmade fine artwork will be for sale at this art festival. Three art professionals serve as Jurors, assuring the high quality of a Festival that attracts artists from across the U.S. Work accepted into the show meets rigorous standards and must be handmade by the exhibitor. No mass-produced items here! Original art, a wide range of music and international foods make this Tarpon Springs' premiere winter season event. The Location Craig Park sits between Spring and Whitcomb Bayous in the center of Tarpon Springs. Its oak-shaded grounds are a perfect backdrop for artists' white tents and unique works. Bayou waters host playful manatee and dolphins all winter. The Community Voted Best Historic Small Town for 2018 by USA Today, the City has long welcomed visitors. The historic Sponge Docks are a working waterfront and tribute to Greek immigrant culture. Downtown boasts restaurants and shops just two blocks away from the Park. Surrounding the Festival is a neighborhood with old Florida ambience: brick streets, Victorian mansions and intimate bungalows.
