Last Call for Artists: 26th Annual Key West Craft Show

Last Call for Artists:
26th Annual Key West Craft Show

January 29-30, 2011
Historic Old Town - Key West, Florida
100 artist booths

Application Deadline: September 1

The Key West Art Center, a non-profit community art center, sponsors the show that highlights 100 artist exhibitors. Locals and tourists alike flock to the Old Towne to see what's new each year and to see old favorites. 

Cruise boats dock just blocks from the show and passengers are dropped onto the street a block from where the canopies line the beautiful tree lined streets. Running parallel one block from famous Duval Street and its famous bars and restaurants, is an added bonus.

In its 26th year now the show has grown and changed from the local funky street bazaar to a wonderfully eclectic mix of skilled and fine craft. Like Key West itself, this show has a wonderful mix of styles and traditions and the locals and tourists alike find their favorites.  January's warm tropical breezes bring tourists of all kinds to our tiny island city and many of them plan their trip around the Key West Craft Show.

The 100 juried artists set up on Whitehead and Caroline Streets in the historic district and through the famous Presidential Gates into the private residential community known as Truman Annex. This compact arrangement makes it easy for visitors to walk the entire show.

This show is run by artists for artists, and strives to bring all the right things together for everyone to have a great show.  Advertising is done throughout the Keys and South Florida with support from the Florida Keys Tourist Development Grant and the Key West Art Center.

Applications available at Key West Art Center

Please feel free to call for more information. We are happy to answer all your questions and hope you come visit!

Please note that this show does not have an online application process - so, if you want to participate you'd better get that application downloaded and in the mail asap!
