Dozens of artists' booths are set up throughout the park, showcasing thousands of art-collector-worthy works: painting, fiber, glass, clay, jewelry, metal, and other forms of art are there for the public to enjoy. Aspiring artists can also let their imagination loose and try a hand at various techniques and approaches, creating and taking home their own masterpieces.

Although art is the main magnet of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, culinary delights are no less important, as food can also become an artistic inspiration.

Arts & Drafts is the project where art meets craft brews. A unique mix of libations and artistic inspiration provides an open forum for workshops and creativity. Flavors of The Grove is a showcase where visitors can savor the culinary delights of South Florida's best restaurants.

Festival History

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival dates back to 1963. At that time, Coconut Grove was Miami’s art district, and a local theatre enthusiast, Charlie Cinnamon, decided to organize a replica of an outdoor Parisian exhibition to promote the Coconut Grove Playhouse’s production of Irma la Douce. Over time, the small gig has grown into one of the largest outdoor arts festivals in the South. At present, more than 100,000 people attend the art festival every year.
