Our mission statement: Holiday Art Shows exists to bring talented, individual artists together with people who appreciate and support their creative endeavors. The person in the booth is the visionary behind the work. When a customer makes a purchase from one of our exhibitors they are buying the highest quality art from real working artists. Furthermore, Holiday Art Shows never knowingly allows exhibitors with less than genuine work nor do we accept those buying and selling imported production or manufactured items meant to be perceived as genuine art.
The Beaches Art Fest is being held October 14 + 15, 2017 on Pablo Avenue (Beach Blvd and A1A), Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
You are invited to apply to this carefully juried, reasonably priced, two-day event which is open to all artists and craftsmen. The Beaches Art Fest is produced by artists for artists; we understand your needs!
Jacksonville Beach is a coastal community located in the Northeast corner of Florida, just east of the City of Jacksonville and is included in the Jacksonville Beaches Communities along with Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, Mayport and Ponte Vedra Beach.
