The city of Gulf Breeze and Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. are proud to announce the upcoming 26th Annual Gulf Breeze Celebrates the Arts Festival, which will be held on March 28th and 29th of 2020. We are excited for our 26th year, hosting over 115 local, regional and national fine artists of all mediums, the Local’s pop up Art Show, Children’s Alley, and an array of live artist demonstration. Don’t forget that along with fabulous artwork, we will have a raffle booth with donations from artists and local businesses, where proceeds go directly into our Education Fund! GBAI has had the privilege of being able to donate festival proceeds to our area’s K-12 schools, for their art, band, drama and JROTC programs, as well as for scholarships to UWF and PSC; in the past 24 years, GBAI has been able to donate over $100,000 to these programs!
Don’t forget the Rotary Club of Gulf Breeze is hosting their annual Gumbo Cook off on Saturday, so the city Gulf Breeze will have a lot to offer! So join us for a spectacular weekend of fine art, shopping, food and lots of fun!
