Head to the Anna Maria Island Art League’s 30th Annual Springfest Festival of Fine Arts and Fine Crafts and dive into art of all colors, textures, and mediums. Held each year in Holmes Beach, the biggest community on this beautiful barrier island, Springfest brings people of all ages together to share its three biggest attractions – entertainment, education, and food! Festival-goers agree that the amazing weekend, scheduled this year for March 10 and 11, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, is packed full of great finds and one-of-a-kind treasures created by some of the country’s top artists and artisans.

Shop the Art

Browse row upon row of original art created by local, regional, and national artists, handpicked for the juried show. Available for purchase are works in watercolors, oils, acrylics, pastels, mixed media, and more. You’ll also find a wide assortment of pottery, woodworking, sculpture, jewelry, and photography. Other well-represented mediums include fiber, paper, and metal.

Cruise the Food

This popular outdoor event explodes with good flavors from specialty food vendors serving up hearty portions of freshly smoked barbecue, seafood, chicken, cheese melts, ice cream, corn dogs, fried green tomatoes, fish tacos, kettle corn, freshly squeezed lemonade … well, you get the picture. There’s plenty to eat, so come hungry!

Sit. Relax. Refresh.

After all of your shopping and food sampling, stretch out on your quilt or lounge chair with your favorite beverage and take in the sounds of live music. There’s more than enough going on at Springfest to make a day of it!

Free and Easy To Attend

There’s no admission charge to attend Springfest, and parking is free. Topping it off for an even grander experience, hop on the town trolley for a free ride around the island. How fun is that?
