Our Commitment

For the Visitors


Every January, February and March, artists will set up their booths in and around Riverside Park in Bonita Springs and dazzle the public with their talent. Bonita Springs welcomes hundreds of nationally and internationally known artists during the Bonita Springs National Art Festivals. Ranked high nationally and known to artists as one of the best in the country, many apply, approximately 200 accepted by a tough jury panel. That means you get the best‐of‐the‐best to see, an unparalleled and excellent collection of original artwork.

For the Community


These great Festivals are a lot more than one weekend in January, February and March. They're about 365 days a year, every year, for 18 years. That's a lot.
The Bonita Springs National Art Festivals have given identity and brought recognition to Bonita Springs and Southwest Florida, giving the City of Bonita Springs its largest cultural events. 'A community's sense of place, its unique 'fabric' is not a static concept; it evolves and develops over time. The Festivals helped shape, reveal and enhance our identity, the unique meaning, value and character of our community.' said Board Chair, Jacke McCurdy.
