Arts Festival wins top honors for Florida events

The Florida Festivals and Events Association (FFEA) likes the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. A lot. For another year, they have honored the Festival with several SUNsational Awards. The honors were presented at the association’s 20th Anniversary Convention and Trade Show held at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort in Orlando.

The professional competition, which draws entries from among 250 of the State’s leading events, presented the Coconut Grove Arts Festival with four Gold/1st Place Awards in the following categories for events within the “$150,000 and Over” budget category: Educational Program, Commemorative Poster, PR/Marketing Campaign and T-Shirt Design. The Arts Festival also received two Silver/2nd Place Awards for Program/Event Guide and Social Media.

Making its debut at the 2014 Arts Festival was the New and Emerging Artist program, which allowed five first-time artists, between the ages of 18 and 29, an opportunity to showcase their work at an outdoor, fine arts festival at a minimal cost. 

Admission into the category also matched the five, young budding artists with an experienced participant, and provided educational workshops during a symposium prior to the event. Alexander Mijares, a Miami native and South Florida artist celebrity, designed the colorful and energetic Arts Festival commemorative poster, titled “La Brisa.”

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival has consistently been named one of the best fine arts festivals in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine and remains the top voted outdoor arts festival in the history of the magazine’s 200 Best.

The Festival introduced it's new 2015 video earlier this month, you can see that here.
