We are a non-profit organization. Our focus is art education – with artist demonstrations and a thoughtful arts environment in scenic downtown Sanford. Going into our 8th year we are distinguishing our festival as an interactive art festival that will have 20 demonstrating artist areas throughout the event. We have $15,000 in awards and we offer an Arts Patron Program. In our commitment to promote the arts the festival is the benefactor of the Art for Kids program, a program that offers art instruction to students unable to pay for art instruction. Proceeds from the event go directly to Art for Kids.
