Learn About An Exciting Festival to Look Forward to This Weekend

12 Feb

One of the best things about living in Miami is enjoying its vibrant cultural scene. Not a week goes by without some sort of festival, event, or other celebratory occasion going on somewhere in this sprawling metropolis. In fact, this coming weekend alone will see one of the most unique and exciting festivals of the year.

This President’s Day Weekend, from February 15th through 17th, the lovely community of Coconut Grove will hosting its 51st Annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival, which offers nearly one mile of arts, crafts, food, and entertainment, running along the streets of McFarlane Road, South Bayshore Drive and Pan American Drive.  Gates open at 10am and close at 6pm. General admission is $15 per person per day, while Coconut Grove residents pay $5 per person per day with proof of residency. Children 12 and under, as well those with either Patriot Passport or Metrorail Golden Passports, receive free admission.

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival is one of the biggest annual events in South Florida, and is recognized as among the top five art festivals in the country. It showcases the artwork of over 360 artists from around the world, while giving members of the burgeoning local art scene a chance to display their work to the thousands of local and out-of-state collectors who visit each year. The wide variety of art genres that are showcased include mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking & drawing, watercolor, claywork, glass, fiber, jewelry and metalwork, sculpture and wood.

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival is produced by the Coconut Grove Arts and Historical Association, a non-profit community organization that also maintains the Coconut Grove Arts Festival Gallery and the HunterGallery, which present special exhibitions throughout the year from its location at Mayfair, Coconut Grove. Proceeds from the festival help to fund year-round arts programs that help young Miami-Dade art students continue their art education.

Since the first festival in 1963, the association has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to students who attend fine arts programs in local schools. Additionally, the festival also stimulates the local economy by attracting tourists and providing a spillover of visitors to Coconut Grove’s commercial venues, such as those on CocoWalk.

Needless to say, this is one event you shouldn’t miss out on. It’s a great way to explore Miami’s rich cultural scene while contributing to a wonderful cause. Such regular fun events are why South Florida is such a widely sought-after place to live.
