CENTRAL WEST FLORIDA ART FESTIVALS

Central West Florida art festivals are held annually in many of the towns and cities in this region along the Gulf Coast. 

Some of these shows are held in St Petersburg, Tampa, Clearwater, Sarasota, Bradenton and Lakeland.

I have attended hundreds of these festivals over my years in Florida, and have enjoyed every single one of them.

Most of the stuff from my modest Florida art collection was purchased at Florida art shows.

Many of my music CD's were purchased at Florida festivals. This is a partial list of annual art festivals, art shows, folk festivals and other outdoor events in Central West Florida arranged by month.
