Northwest Florida art festivals, art shows, folk festivals and other outdoor events are among the most enjoyable things you can do. 

They take place during the year in Pensacola, Seaside, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and other panhandle towns and cities.

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 arranged by month.
