CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
The city of Gulf Breeze and Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. are proud to host the 27th Annual Gulf Breeze Celebrates the Arts Festival, held on March 27 and 28, 2021 in Gulf Breeze, Florida. This two day event is a staple event for the city of Gulf Breeze, which is a beautiful little city located between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach, just a short drive from the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. We are excited to host 100+ local, regional and national fine artists, food vendors, a children's art show, a local artists art show, a charity raffle as well as live artist demonstrations. We are lined up behind the Orange Beach Arts Festival and the Fairhope Arts Festival, making these three festivals a perfect line up for the month of March.
Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. prides itself in donating the proceeds of the GBAF to local art scholarships for college, as well as local school art enhancement programs to help with supplies and projects. We have assisted in getting large items such as kilns, and have donated to the Band and JROTC programs for instruments and class trips as well. As of 2020, GBAI has donated over $110,000. We would be unable to do this without the participation of our artists, such as yourself, so thank you for your participation and support.
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!
