Coconut Grove Arts Festival set to return this weekend

For fans of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, there’s good news: The internationally acclaimed fine arts exhibition is set to return in February!

The annual festival along Coconut Grove’s waterfront was canceled in 2021. However, it’s now back to its regular spot in the calendar – Presidents Day weekend, from Feb. 19-21, 2022.

The outdoor festival, which began in 1963, features exhibits in mixed media, including painting, photography, digital art, printmaking/drawing, watercolor, claywork, glass, fiber, jewelry/metalwork, sculpture and wood. 

“We’re excited about 2022 and expect that pent-up demand for the festival will bring our longtime and respected guests back out in droves to celebrate our return,” said the festival’s president, Monty Trainer, in a news release.

COST: Daily admission is $25 on the day of the event and $20 if you purchase your tickets online. Entry is free for children age 12 and younger, Metrorail Golden Passport and Patriot Passport holders. Coconut Grove residents (in the 33133 ZIP code) may purchase $10 tickets online or $15 at the gate, but proof of residency is required.

LOCATION: 2700 S. Bayshore Drive, Miami; just south of downtown Miami, along the streets of McFarlane Road, South Bayshore Drive and Pan American Drive.

HOURS: 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday-Sunday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday.

MORE INFORMATION: Visit the festival’s official website or Facebook page.
