The 5th Annual West Palm Beach Arts Festival presented by the Armory Art Center will feature local and out-of-town artists, live music, demonstrations, food trucks, and activities for all ages.

Our last Festival brought 6,000 visitors and 95 artists. This event is well publicized by local media reporting, media sponsorships, advertising, and social media. Scheduled at the perfect time for holiday shopping, vendors will reach affluent Palm Beach and Broward County residents, plus engage our large seasonal tourist population.

The campus hosts space for up to eighty 10’x10’ tents, socially distanced, throughout the Armory’s campus. Tents will be located outdoors in the sculpture garden and in the parking lot.

The Armory Art Center is on the south end of Howard Park within walking distance of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, the Palm Beach Convention Center, Hilton West Palm Beach, and Rosemary Square—a premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destination.

Artists will have the opportunity to interact with the public through art demos and booth chats. Live music, food, and activities for kids make the festival a perfect experience for all.

This festival has a juried application process and all artists must apply to a category: 2-D (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, mixed media) or 3-D (ceramics, sculpture, fiber, jewelry, glass, furniture.)
