Coconut Grove Arts Festival

President’s Day Weekend in Coconut Grove takes on another meaning when the famed Coconut Grove Art Festival returns February 15, 16, and 17th. The close-knit, waterfront village becomes flooded with 100,000 visitors perusing the artistic kiosks lining the streets from McFarlane, to South Bayshore Drive and Pan American Drive. This sidewalk art show started humbly in 1963 and has grown substantially since then, now encompassing nearly a mile, 380 hand-picked global artists, and 50 food vendors. The Festival is a celebration of the community’s culture, the arts, and February’s glorious weather in South Florida. Today it is considered amongst the top annual events in Miami alongside Art Basel and South Beach Wine and Food Festival.

The Festival has also been a philanthropic minded event from the start. Staffed totally by volunteers, 100% of the money made goes to scholarships and art programs at magnet schools. For the first time 50 of the artists have been assigned to mentor kids and lead workshops at school throughout the community, a mission already yielding results. This year will also showcase a young talent with a familiar last name. Emily Estefan will kick off the weekend with a concert on Feb 14th (find tickets here). There will be more live music offered throughout the weekend. 

Check out the website for more information about the “Family Zone,” Culinary Pavilion, Live Music Schedule, Featured Artists, and Festival Map. Tickets are $15, $10 for Coconut Grove residents, and free for kids 12 and under.

We will be sharing updates as the Festival’s build comes alive right outside of our Compass offices! We’ll see you inside the gates.
