🐠 Special Call for Artists from The Island Art Festival!

Calling all Artists & Food Vendors!  There is still a chance to get in on the opening event for the tourist season in the Keys. A Keys tradition always on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving (Small Market Saturday), The Island Art Festival is the premier event for the Christmas shopping season!

Many people from south Florida take advantage of what is a 4-day weekend to come to the Keys & explore! As a very artisan community, folks are always looking for special items to take home. Even though the crowds are big this year, they will be limiting the amount of booths to 100, with less than 10% of them being for food. This will give a huge advantage to all Artists and vendors. This art fair is always a favorite.
