Downtown Gainesville Festival and Art Show

It’s time to celebrate in Gainesville. On a roll for several years running, the Downtown Festival & Art Show has steadily climbed in rankings in recent years and moved up another three positions, while breaking its own placement records.

Out of nearly 1,000 art and craft festivals across the nation, the Downtown Festival & Art Show stands out as one of the most profitable for attending artists. To create the list, Sunshine Artist analyzes thousands of ballots from artists who record the amount of money they earn at the festivals they attend. Shows receive points based on these earnings, and the ones with the most points gain the top spots in the rankings.

The Downtown Festival & Art Show has ranked among the top festivals in the nation since 1996, making it into the top 10 best fine art shows ever.  This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, Nov. 16, and Sunday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. More than 100,000 visitors are expected to attend this nationally-recognized event featuring 250 talented artists who showcase their oils and acrylics, watercolors, sculptures, jewelry, ceramics and photography. Live entertainment, delicious food and an Imagination Station for children help make the Downtown Festival & Art Show Gainesville’s premier fall festival.

Date: November 16 – 17, 2013
