ArtFest in Pembroke Pines offers Art, Entertainment & Family-friendly Fun

Get ready to “Embrace the Art of Life.”

The City of Pembroke Pines is buzzing with preparations for the 23rd Annual Artfest in the Pines!

The longstanding art and culture powerhouse, sponsored by Baptist Health South Florida, is back with a new month to call its own. You can expect the immersive experience of years past, now interwoven with hints of pumpkin spice, gift giving, and spending time with loved ones. Starting this year, #Artfest will be held the first weekend in November, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day.

We invite you to join us November 6-7 at the Charles F. Dodge City Center, 601 City Center Way, as we welcome back the weekend-long event. Patrons and participants alike can expect eclectic and talented artists, fun-filled entertainment, family-friendly activities and much more!

We’d like to extend our congratulations to our Festival Poster Winner, Ana Aguerrevere. In addition to being a resident artist at Studio 18 in the Pines, Ana boats an impressive resume that spans 30 years of academic and practical experience. Knowing this, it’s no surprise that her winning piece, “Marbles,” was a standout entry in the 16th Annual Art Competition. “Marbles” will adorn the cover of our annual festival booklet, the official one-stop guide to all things Artfest. See Ana  at the festival, or  connect with her via our social media or her website

As we journey toward the festival, we encourage you to monitor our social channels for early-access to our artists, entertainers, and events:

There is no admission fee or registration required for Artfest, patrons of all ages are welcome, and accessible-parking is available.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
