A free public festival, IMAGES: A Festival of the Arts, is considered one of the top outdoor art shows in the Southeast US; indeed 92% of participating artists rated the event a “10″, the highest rating. In 2014, the 38th annual juried fine art festival presented 225 artists from 29 states and Canada, and drew 45,000 arts enthusiasts, an increase of 7%. The weekend of festivities includes outstanding art, live music, a student art exhibit featuring the work of 100 of our talented youth in Southeast Volusia, and a creative education tent with five hands-on art projects that serves over 750 children, in partnership with art educators from our local schools.
