Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is accepting applications for the 54th Annual Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts on March 2 and 3, 2024. Each March, GFA presents 250 artists to the 30,000+ patrons who attend the event at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in Downtown Tampa. We are currently accepting applications for artists to considered for participation in the main show (the Emerging Artists Program application will open in early October). This year our selection jurors (new every year) will choose up to 235 artists to join the festival and vie for nearly $100,000 in prize money including the $15,000 Raymond James Best-in-Show award. This is an amazing opportunity for artists to connect with Tampa Bay art lovers and be a part of one of the most prestigious art festivals in the US. Apply by October 1, 2022 by clicking here!
