About Coconut Grove Arts Festival

What began in 1963 as an intimate clothes line art show featuring a handful of artists and a few thousand onlookers as part of a promotion for the Coconut Grove Playhouses production of Irma la Douce has transformed itself into South Florida's most successful arts festival. Today, the event attracts an estimated 120,000 people to the winding streets of Coconut Grove during President's Day weekend. Produced by the Coconut Grove Arts and Historical Association, Inc., a non-profit community organization under the direction of a board of directors and full-time staff, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival showcases the works of 360 internationally recognized artists who are selected from nearly 1,300 applicants. Jurors evaluate the artists work and displays to select participants in such categories as mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking & drawing, watercolor, claywork, glass, fiber, jewelry & metalwork, sculpture and wood.
