Hello Joe and thank you for alerting me to the Cedar Key dates. Shows approach us and ask to have their shows placed on our calendar and then we never hear from 95% of them when it is time to update their shows. So, that means I have to look up all these dates. I am certainly not complaining as I really like what I do, however it is very easy to get an occasional show date wrong. I try to contact shows if I am having trouble finding their show dates and then probably 15% still don't send me their show updates. So, I do appreciate it when someone lets me know about a mistake as we try very hard to have an accurate calendar.


The Cedar Key Seafood fest in Oct is on the 15th and 16th. I just tried to book a room on your incorrect dates listed above (21st and 22nd).

Hello Stephanie, Thanks for sending us in your dates for the Boca Raton Museum of Art Show. I try to keep the Art Fair Calendar update 6 months out. So, as of today (middle of July), I usually hope all of our shows are up to date through to the end of December. So, as you can see, February is a bit out of what I am working on. Most people don't realize that probably for 99% of the shows no one from the show sends me their up coming show dates. That means I have to hunt them down. I look at websites and I email shows for those dates. Many shows never even respond to my emails. If I can't find the dates for the show there will not be an asterisk* placed next to the dates for that show. I have a red disclaimer pointing out that the asterisk indicates the show has current show dates and that the calendar has not been completely updated beyond that point. Did you see that notice? However, I do thank you for sending us those show dates. I have updated the show.

Hello! I am writing on behalf of the Boca Raton Museum of Art. The dates for the Outdoor Juried Festival in Mizner Park, Boca Raton, in February 2017, are incorrect. The fair will be February 4 and 5, 2017. Thank you!

Hello Elana, We list fine art shows here on the Art Fair Calendar. We try to limit our listings to shows that sell juried fine art. While your event sounds lovely it would find more interested patrons on a different website. Thank you for your interest in our calendar.

I am writing to inquire how to get our information listed with you. I am new at this and can use all the help I can get! We are the Lakeland Miniature Guild

Hello Hal, the shows that have been updated have the little asterisk right after the dates. Not too many shows send us their show updates. So, that leaves me to hunt the internet to find the up coming show dates! I just have updated all of the pages through to March yet. You would be surprised how many shows don't put their future show dates on their websites until right before their shows are to take place. When I can't find the dates and the show doesn't respond to my emails their shows are removed from our calendar. So, that is what is going on.


When reviewing your Florida shows in March 2016 I noticed that many of the dates do not match the weekends in March. Could those dates be wrong?

Jacki Bils

Hello Judy. You are correct. Not all the shows on our Florida page are up to date yet. If you noticed I have a statement posted that not all the shows after October 25th are up to date. The reason for that is I have to chase all of the shows down if they do not have current show information on their website. You would be surprised how many times I encounter that. Be patient, I am still working on updates. Oh, if you see an asterisk * after a show date, that indicates that show's dates are correct.

Hello Jen, Yes, you need to contact the show personally that you want to be a vendor in. That way you can ask questions and see what that show's requirements are.
Good Luck to you.


Days are not accurate in several Florida shows , it seems they are putting a lot of Monday's but they r not , you still can plan the show for that weekend

Jen Kish

Hi, I really appreciate all the work you've done compiling this comprehensive list. I want to find out more about becoming a vendor at these fairs. Do I need to contact each one individually? Thanks.

Jacki Bils

Hello Karin, I found their Facebook page and here is the contact email for the Art Fest Naples at Fleischmann Park - artfestnaples@gmail.com

Good Luck to you.

Karin Sheer


I am interested in exhibiting in the January 24, 25 show in Naples at Fleischmann Park. Who can I contact about that?

Jacki Bils

Hello Jill, You might contact the show and maybe they would share the list of artists with you that were in the show. If you can get a list of artists, look them up and you may be able to figure out which one had the pendulums. Here is the website. Copy and paste it into your browser. Good luck http://asoft10113.accrisoft.com/bocamuseum/index.php?src=gendocs&ref=Outdoor+Juried+Art+Festival

Jill Berlin

I attended the Boca Raton Museum of Art Outdoor Juried Art Festival on February 7 & 8. While there I saw wonderful colored glass block pendulums - hanging from a heavy wire and suspended from beautiful metal brackets.
I have lost the artist's cards and am interested in located the name of this artist. If anyone knows, please share.

Thanks --

Hello Alejandro, this website is a calendar of juried art shows. We don't advise people on how to sell other people's art work. Also, you are correct about one thing. Juried shows do not let people sell other people's art work. The artist has to be present at the show. So, none of the shows we list here on the Art Fair Calendar will allow you to sell art work you have picked up anywhere that is produced by someone else. A gallery may take a few pieces but you would have to talk to the gallery. Good Luck.


Hello everyone,

I was wondering if I could get any advice from you.
I'm selling art pieces from different up and coming artists from Latin America. For what I can see several of these shows only allows the artist to sell their work. I would like to see if anyone could advice me into what shows I should try to get in. Oh btw I live in West Palm Beach.

Thank you so much to everyone I look forward hearing your feedbacks

Hello Pat and thank you so much for alerting us to the changes to the Bonita Springs Art Festival. Unfortunately very few shows contact us when they make changes to their shows. We usually discover those changes as we look for the new show dates.

I appreciate that you took the time to send us this information. We will be updating the show today.

Pat Nicola

Under the Bonita Springs Art Festival for Bonita Springs Florida (ie. March 14th & 15), you have the setting as "upscale shopping center plays host", but it is now in a Park setting (Riverside Park). It also lists both the park address and the Bay Rd address (which belongs to the old shopping center location). Could be very confusing to first time attendees. Thanks for revising.

Hello N. Floden, Your question is not easy to answer. It depends where you live. Greeting cards would probably sell better at a craft show. We list art shows here. You may need to buy certain supplies to sell your product. Most indoor craft shows issue the crafter a table. Art shows usually require the artist to own a certain kind of tent. You might try googling craft shows in your state. You could also join us at www.ArtFairInsiders.com. We have a crafter's forum there and you could ask questions in there. Good luck.

N. Floden

I make 2, 3,4 and more dimentional cards for birthdays, anniversaries, get well, sorry for your loss, Friendship, Christmas and more. Where would I find a place to sell them?

Jacki Bils

Hello Linda. The little asterisk is a notation for me. It lets me know that I have checked and verified those dates. If the show doesn't have the asterisk I know that I still need to get those dates. The asterisk just makes it easy for me.
And that is all there is to it.

Linda Vanetta

What does the * asterisk mean after the dates? Not all the listings have one.

Jacki Bils

Hello Carol, If you woud like to apply to that show, copy and paste the link into your browser - http://artinusa.com/bonita/.

You will find all the information you need to apply to the show. Do it soon because you never know when their application due date is.

Good luck
