Welcome to the Sanibel Arts & Crafts Festival!
What began as a humble pancake breakfast featuring a few local artists more than 30 years ago has grown into one of Southwest Florida’s premier juried art shows. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club’s Annual Arts & Crafts Festival is held over President’s Day weekend and features more than 120 of the country’s most talented artists.
For a small donation, you will be ushered into the place where fine art, island history and nature meet.
Walking through our tree-lined show is like visiting dozens of art galleries simultaneously. While the viewing experience is amazing in itself, you’ll no doubt want to take home some of the one-of- a-kind pieces for sale by the talented artists. Whether you’re looking for an acrylic painting to fit perfectly over your sofa, a hand-blown glass sculpture to feature on a bookshelf or that perfect gold gemstone necklace for your granddaughter’s graduation gift, you will certainly find it here. That…and so much more.
Check out the video from the 2018 show. Produced and edited by Rotarian Richard Green.
While at the Festival, you won’t want to miss our silent auction with hundreds of amazing items up for bid. From a family ski vacation in Vermont to a rare bottle of wine to gift certificates for some of our island’s best eateries, our silent auction truly has something for everyone!
And, be sure to visit the newly added food court for a delicious lunch, cold beverage, sweet treat or just a little rest in the shade.
Now, here’s the best part. Because the Arts & Crafts Festival is the primary fundraiser for our club, all proceeds are used to support college scholarships and many worthy local, regional and international projects. Click here for a link to learn more about our philanthropic outreach.
