“Local Art & Performance”

Join us for this one-day FREE art festival serving as a catalyst to celebrate the emergence of new and innovative artists in Central Florida!

November 6th (9am-4pm) 2021
Munn Park (Downtown Lakeland)

Over 50 ARTISTS, 15 ART SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS, 

LIVE PERFORMANCES & MORE!

Art Crawl is a FREE festival featuring over 50 local artists from over 20 different cities in Central Florida selling artwork and competing for prizes alongside live performances, art demonstrations and local organizations and sponsors proactively supporting the arts. Art Crawl is designed to spotlight emerging artists, performers, other area art organizations, and grass-root art movements that may not fit the common tradition of art festivals in the area. The ultimate desire is to highlight artists using their skills in contemporary media and content – the combination of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that challenge traditional boundaries.

This 8th annual juried art festival is an accessible venue for art collection, entertainment and FUN! Artwork featured will be accessible for all budgets. Start your collection here!
