Home > Event History

In 1984 a dedicated group of Red Sunset Merchants Association members conceived an arts and crafts festival as a way to bring shoppers into the area and to serve the community by bringing the arts closer to the local population. Started as a small show with only 25 booths, it has grown to over 150 vendors spanning all four blocks of downtown South Miami

Recently named by ArtFairSourceBook.com to the AFSB Blue Chip 100 Fine Art Event, it is clearly one of Miami-Dade’s most anticipated events

The festival is now wholly produced by the dedicated volunteers of the Rotary Club of South Miami and its Rotary Foundation. Our artists come from all over the United States and Canada. Over the years the show has engaged local musicians to play during this juried event

Proceeds from our festival fund college scholarships for South Miami students, and other local, national, and international service projects
